RSA Authority: 329-A:14
Fiscal Impact Statement: FIS# 13:035, dated April 3, 2013
This proposal contains amendments and readoption with amendments to the existing rules in Plu 300 on initial plumber licensing and water treatment technician certification and in plu 400 on continued status, including continuing education, renewals and reinstatements. New rules are also proposed in Plu 400 to provide for the phase in of a two year license as mandated by RSA 329-A:11 effective January 1, 2010. The rules do not raise or lower any licensing fees and as such has little financial impact except for the first year of the licensing phase in period. The proposal also includes changes in contact information for the Board in Plu 100. There are also changes to hearing procedures in Plu 200. Because the rules establish procedures for renewals and changes in contact information only, there are no additional costs associated with the rules. The rules therefore do not assign any new, modified, or expanded programs or responsibilties to political subdivisions of the state in such a way as to necessitate local expenditures and so do not violate Part I, Article 28-a of the NH ConstitutionProposed changes are on our website: http://www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/firesafety/building/plumbing/index.html
