KS Senate Votes For Consumers

Tom Holland

The Kansas Senate has voted in favor of consumers.  Senators on Tuesday voted to enact the Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act.  Senator Tom Holland of Baldwin City said the bill would require contractors and subcontractors who are working on homes and businesses to register with the state to prove their legitimacy.

He said, “What we’re talking about is out of state roofing contractors.  They will approach residents, get them to write a check to roof or reroof their home, and they basically just leave and don’t come back.”

Holland said the law would require that contractors register on an annual basis, and if a contactor fell out of favor jeopardizing his or her registration, they might have to pay a 500 dollar reinstatement fee to return to good standing with the Kansas Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.
