Here is something else to stir the pot. As you may or may not know, Senate Bill 932, "The Illiois Electricians Act" passed the Senate earlier this year and in my conversations with Speaker Madigan's office, stands a good chance of passing the House this fall or next spring. I have also been told the Guv will bless it as well. I know this does not relate to registration per village, but it will have a huge impact on licensing.
May want to gear up fellas. I think it is on its way!
That last time I looked at the bill It was my understanding there was a double standard. A what ever over 500,000 people can make it's own rules and testing. If your licianced in the 500K place you can work anywhere in IL. But being licenced in IL does not allow you to work in the 500K place. IMO it is to reduce suburban EC from working in Chicago. But give Chi EC the advantage. Sorta like the way it is now where Chicago only accepts a Chicago license.
At least the bill puts everyone elce in IL on the same page.
Also, does anybody know if the multiple city fee law is in effect in California? Incidentally,this is not exclusively electrical, but in my town, Santa Rosa, it costs over $40,000. to get a permit for building a 2000 SF house.
