Period of Issuance:
Plumber Licenses: All plumber licenses expire on December. 31, which will not change. The expiration year, however, will get extended two years once this two-year license change is put into effect. The specific licenses expiring December. 31, 2009, that are affected by this change will be known by Oct. 1, 2009, and will be identified on DLI's website. Once the two year license period is implemented, the license fee for renewals will be $264 for master plumbers and restricted master plumbers and $121 for journeyman plumbers and restricted journeyman plumbers. Plumbing contractor code compliance bonds, filed with the department, will also cover the same two year period of the master plumber's license, rather than the current one-year period. The result is a filing fee of $80 versus the current $40 annual filing fee.
