KIM ROSE BACKS HER CONTRACTOR BILL
Rep. Kim Rose appeared before the General Law Committee to support a proposal she has been pushing for several years. HB 5785 An Act Concerning Insurance and Testing Requirements for Home Improvement Contractors, looks to protect consumers by requiring home improvement contractors to obtain liability insurance coverage, pass a written examination and doubles the guarantee fund, which the consumer can turn to. “This is a very important bill for me and the people we represent,” Rep. Rose said. “I was a victim of a shoddy contractor and I have heard from many constituents who have faced the same problem. Several people are under the false impression that contractors are licensed, when in fact, many are not. We need to put a mechanism in place to hold contractors accountable for faulty work.” READ MORE

REP. KIM ROSE PUSHES CRITICAL LEGISLATION
Kim Rose has been actively working on key legislation that will have a big impact in Milford. Two key proposals have been submitted and are gaining momentum. An affordable housing proposal and a contractor bill that Rep. Rose has championed since she was sworn in to serve her constituents in 2011 are moving through the legislative process. The affordable housing bill is expected to have a public hearing in New Haven during the upcoming weeks and residents are encouraged to participate. Please call the office number (800) 842-8267 for more information. “It is essential that we get as much participation as possible,” Rep. Rose said. The contractor bill calls for more accountability for home contractors, testing their knowledge about state law, showing proof of and increasing their liability coverage, and requiring an increase to the $15k guarantee fund now in place to $30k that would become available to homeowners for claims, if litigation were won in court.
