Illinois Weighs Bill Creating Licensing Guidelines
for Glaziers, Contractors
The Illinois State Senate is currently reviewing a bill that would
enable the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation
to establish state guidelines for the licensing of glazing contractors.
As it stands, there are four main requirements set forth in the
proposed contracting license application process.
The first would require an applicant to have liability and property
damage insurance in amounts yet to be determined by the state Department
of Financial and Professional Regulation. The second would require
an applicant to have workers' compensation insurance, or be approved
as a self-insurer. The third would require an applicant to have
an Illinois Unemployment Insurance identification number, or have
proof of application to the state Department of Labor for a number.
The fourth would require applicants to submit a $10,000.00 bond
to the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
If passed, the bill would require all contractors to prominently
display their contracting license in their office or place of work,
on any business vehicles and on any recorded, issued, or pending
The bill also includes the prerequisites for eligibility for a
license as a contractor.
