USGNN Original StoryIllinois Glazing Bill Died

A bill that would have required that glaziers in Illinois be licensed, and which had been circulating in that state's General Assembly since January 2007, died last week.

Illinois House Bill 359 2007-2008 was introduced by Representative Linda Chapa LaVia and would have established the Painting, Drywall Finishing and Glazing Contractor Licensing Act, and provide for the enforcement of the act by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and the Painting, Drywall Finishing and Glazing Contractor Licensing Board. In addition, the act would have amended the Regulatory Sunset Act to set a repeal date for the Painting, Drywall Finishing, and Glazing Contractor Licensing Act of January 1, 2018. The related Senate Bill 155 met the same fate.

Neither Linda Chapa LaVia nor her aides were not available for comment as to whether this bill would be revisited in the future.
