Local Electrical Contractors Worried About Survival in Wake of New Bill

Electricians in Missouri are concerned about new State license bill, claiming it gives larger companies an advantage to do business in the state over local contractors.

Paul Gross, owner of Paul’s Electric Service, St. Clair, says the new licensing standard will essentially kill off the small electrical contractor trade, which is already suffering from a lack of young electricians.

“I was personally shocked to have heard absolutely nothing about his bill before it was signed by the governor,” Gross said. “Not a single contractor I know, or anyone from Franklin County was consulted.”
