HB 239 Low-voltage Contractors, Division of; require continuing education; authorize

Voted on Thursday February 23, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation would seek to place continuing education requirements on low-voltage workers in Georgia. By definition "low-voltage" wiring is not dangerous (cannot shock dangerously, cannot start fire). These requirements and their costs would be borne by the worker, and for workers who are making on average ~$18 an hour; this could be a tremendous burden. The argued public safety benefit is not worth the cost and burden on the market.
