A JOINT RESOLUTION TO PROVIDE THAT ALL CONTRACTOR LICENSES THAT EXPIRED DECEMBER 31, 1998, CONTINUE IN EFFECT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1, 1999, AND TO PROVIDE WHAT STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS APPLY TO LICENSES RENEWED BETWEEN THOSE DATES.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Contractor's licenses; expiration and renewal under new law
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a license previously issued to a contractor with an expiration date of December 31, 1998, is valid until September 1, 1999. Licenses expiring December 31, 1998, must be renewed by April 1, 1999, or as otherwise provided in this joint resolution. A contractor not renewing a license before April 1, 1999, shall retain his old license group limitation until the license is renewed. From April 1, 1999, to September 1, 1999, contractors may renew licenses under the provisions of Chapter 11, Title 40, to become effective April 1, 1999, without being subject to penalties for failure to renew under these provisions. After September 1, 1999, late renewal penalties must be applied in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 11, Title 40, in effect at that time.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 28th day of April, 1999.
Approved the 3rd day of May, 1999.
