SECTION 2. Section 40-59-77(B) of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 595 of 1990, is amended to read:
"(B) Residential specialty contractors must be qualified and experienced in the particular branches or fields of the contracting vocation in which they intend to, and do, engage. A certified residential specialty contractor may make application for classification and be classified in more than one classification if he meets the qualifications prescribed by the commission for the additional classification. The commission shall set a fee for application and a certification fee for each classification. Only one application fee is required no matter how many specialty classifications a residential specialty contractor applies for. The certification fee set by the commission may cover only the cost of testing for the specialty certification. In lieu of examination for certification in the specialty classifications of plumber, electrician, and heating and air conditioning installers and repairers, the commission shall accept satisfactory evidence of certification as journeyman plumber; master plumber; journeyman electrician; master electrician; journeyman heating and air conditioning; and master heating and air conditioning by the Municipal Association of South Carolina and shall waive the certification fee.
Residential specialty contractors certified by the commission are not exempt from complying with county and municipal business license ordinances or other regulatory ordinances.
