Office of Administrative Law Approves CSLB Fee Increase

New fee schedule begins July 1, 2011

SACRAMENTO – Contractors State License Board (CSLB) application, licensing and registration fees transition to a new schedule on July 1, 2011, following action taken by the state Office of Administrative Law (OAL) in 2010. CSLB fees had remained the same since 1993. OAL approved increases that would represent the statutory maximum that was set by the Legislature in 2002 in response to the Enforcement Monitor report that called for increased resources for CSLB’s enforcement program.  The increase will help assure that CSLB is able to uphold its mandated protection of California consumers and the integrity of the construction industry.
