Senator Priola introduced Senate Bill 17-247, concerning the qualifications of electricians. The bill waives the continuing education requirement upon first license renewal or reinstatement for electricians who successfully completed a licensing examination in connection with his or her initial licensure. In addition, the bill repeals a provision allowing electricians who have certain certification and experience but have not passed a written residential wireman's examination to conduct state inspections of family dwellings and, as a result, allows only electricians who have passed the written residential wireman's examination to act as state inspectors of family dwellings. He provided amendment L.001 (Attachment G).
