Description

Board for Contractors; Virginia Contractor Transaction Recovery Act. Makes several changes to Virginia Contractor Transaction Recovery Act to clarify the eligibility and assessment requirements for the claims review process including (i) adding a definition of "verified claim," (ii) clarifying the supporting documentation that must be provided by a claimant, and (iii) detailing efforts that must be taken to attempt collection of an unpaid judgment before a claim may be filed. The bill also removes the requirement for an informal fact-finding conference under the Administrative Process Act prior to the Board for Contractors making a final decision. In addition, the bill removes the requirement for the Board to immediately revoke the license of the contractor against whom the judgment had been obtained upon payment of a claim Read the Bill »
