Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


                     STATEMENT  OF  PURPOSE
                            RS 13522
The proposed legislation will authorize three (3)-year renewals of
plumbing certificates and amend the fee schedule pertaining to the
same.  The proposal also clarifies the renewal requirements
regarding apprentice registration.






                         FISCAL  IMPACT
There will be no fiscal impact on the general fund.  The three (3)-
year license fee will be based on present yearly fees.  The
Plumbing Bureau proposes to implement this with a staggered renewal
process.  Initially there will be an increase to the license fee
revenue for the Plumbing Bureau Dedicated Fund.  After the
implementation period one-third (1/3) of the license fees would be
received annually.
