The bill amends Sections 34-8-1 and 34-8-7 of the Code of Alabama 1975, concerning the State Licensing Board for General Contractors. The amendments include an increase in the threshold cost of projects that define an individual as engaging in the business of general contracting from $50,000 to $100,000. Additionally, the bill exempts labor brokers and other temporary labor providers from certain licensing requirements, specifying that temporary workers are considered under the license of the general contractor they are provided to, but these providers cannot act as subcontractors or assume a subcontractor's scope of work for a project.

The bill also maintains that a "general contractor" includes those undertaking construction, repair, or renovation of swimming pools where the cost exceeds $5,000. It outlines various exemptions from the chapter, such as authorized government representatives, personal property construction, utilities in emergencies, and routine maintenance work. Notably, the bill adds a new exemption for labor brokers or temporary labor providers, clarifying their role and the licensing coverage under general contractors. The act is set to become effective on October 1, 2024.
