“CALL BEFORE YOU DIG” REFORM

This bill seeks to reform the state’s “call before you dig – 811” system.  The current version of the bill removes all exemptions from calling.  Question is, would this impact your operations?  Are there instances where you break the surface of the ground that should not trigger a call.  We’d like to hear from you.

SB 119 (Hill D)   Protection of subsurface installations.

Summary: Would require the Contractors’ State License Board to adopt a program to enforce violations of provisions relating to excavation. The bill would authorize the board to require a contractor to undergo training, levy a fine, and suspend a contractor’s license for a violation.
