Prieto Bill to Crack Down on Plumbing, HVAC Contractors Practicing Without a License Clears First Legislative Hurdle(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel on Monday released legislation sponsored by Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto that would make it a fourth degree crime to advertise or perform plumbing or HVAC services without proper credentials.
"Through increased penalties, we aim to better protect the public interest and safety by deterring unscrupulous and unqualified contractors from swindling residents out of time and money," said Prieto (D-Hudson).
