The Georgia State Licensing Board for Residential and General Contractors proposes a new rule for Chapter 553-3 qualifications for licensure. The new rule will implement a process so that military spouses and transitioning service members may qualify for licensure with the State Licensing Board.
A public hearing will be held on June 21, 2017 at 9 a.m. at the Office of the Secretary of State, Professional Licensing Boards Division, 237 Coliseum Drive, Macon, Georgia. This hearing will be an opportunity for the public to comment and provide input into the proposed rule. The proposed new rule will be considered for adoption by the State Licensing Board for Residential and General Contractors at this meeting on June 21.
In this new rule, military spouses and transitioning service members may qualify for an expedited processing of the license application by showing that he or she is a military spouse or transitioning service member, and that he or she (the applicant) has paid the fee and meets the requirements for licenses under the law and rules for the type of license for which the applicant has applied and in accordance with Title 43, Chapter 41.
Specifically military will mean the US armed forces including the National Guard. Transitioning service member will be defined as a member of the military on active duty or separation leave who is within 24 months of retirement or 12 months of separation.
If this new proposed rule passes, it will become effective July 1, 2017.
