New law eases licensing for contractors

BUFFALO — A new law to come out of the 2024 legislative session will eliminate some of the hoops that contractors have to jump through to obtain licenses in different municipalities, but an unintended consequence may be felt in city building department revenues.
Gov. Mark Gordon signed SF0114, Contractor Licenses Reciprocal Recognition Requirements, which goes into effect on July 1.
Under the law, each county, city, town and other government entity that issues licenses to contractors will now recognize a license issued to a contractor by another county, city, town or other government entity in Wyoming.
This means contractors will only have to get and pay for licenses from one local government, even if they work in multiple communities.
