New Jersey Call to ActionOn August 7th, the Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors (the "Board") posted Rule Proposal 2459 (a) in the New Jersey Register, which proposes to amend the Fire Alarm, Burglar Alarm and Locksmith Advisory Committee's fee schedule for Qualifiers and Business License(s). The Board notes that the Committee's fees have not been increased since 2004, and it feels that substantial fee increases that range from 50-100% are necessary for the Board to maintain its operations.
The Board is proposing to amend N.J.A.C. 13:31A-1.4(a) to increase the initial individual license fees accordingly:
• during the first year of a triennial period, from $120.00 to $180.00;
• during the second year of a triennial period, from $80.00 to $120.00;
• and during the third year of a triennial period, from $40.00 to $60.00.
The Board is also proposing to increase the fee for a business license as follows:
• from $75.00 to $150.00 during the first year of a triennial period;
• from $50.00 to $100.00 in the second year of a triennial period;
• and from $25.00 to $50.00 in the third year of a triennial period.
In addition, the Board is proposing to increase the triennial renewal fee for licensees:
• from $120.00 to $180.00;
• and for business licenses from $75.00 to $150.00.
Lastly, consistent with these suggested increases, the Board is proposing to increase the temporary courtesy license and renewal fees:
• from $40.00 to $60.00.
The NJESA believes that these fee increases are unreasonable and excessive. Therefore, we encourage you to voice your concerns about these proposed fee increases by submitting comments to the Board by October 6, 2017.
