AVTI Quoted in Article by World Journal

April 27, 2012 - LOS ANGELES, Calif.

The World Journal recently published an article about changes in construction law, specifically Assembly Bill 370, which affects unlicensed construction activity in California. The article addresses the fears and concerns related to the underground economy, particularly in the Chinese community and draws upon the perspectives of home owners, contractors, and other industry players.

The article highlights the repercussions of unlicensed activities, informing readers about the pitfalls of working without permits, as well as possible criminal prosecution by the Contractor State License Board (CSLB). With an increase in undercover sting operations by the CSLB's Statewide Investigative Fraud Team (SWIFT), unlicensed contractors may be better off seeking proper licensure as an alternative to criminal prosecution.

As the article points out, local schools like AVTI play a critical role in assisting unlicensed contractors in the Chinese community, who speak little to no English, obtain proper licensure. With the tools provided by AVTI, these individuals are given a platform to learn about contractual laws, municipal codes, and standard building regulations. In the end, educated, well-informed, and licensed contractors help protect consumers and the entire industry as a whole.
