California (15,500 jobs, 2.7 percent) added the most construction jobs between January and February, followed by Georgia; North Carolina (4,500 jobs, 2.7 percent); and Florida (4,400 jobs, 1.3 percent). Simonson noted that 18 states lost construction jobs between January and February while employment levels remained unchanged in 3 other states. The largest monthly percentage losses occurred in Maine (-3.8 percent, -1,000 jobs); Alaska (-3.1 percent, -500 jobs); Arkansas (-2.8 percent, -1,300 jobs); and North Dakota (-2.8 percent, -600 jobs). Texas lost the most construction jobs (-4,300, -0.7 percent), followed by New York (-4,100 jobs, -1.4 percent); Colorado (-2,700 jobs, -2.4 percent); and Arizona (-2,600 jobs, -2.4 percent). The largest year-over-year percentage gains occurred in the District of Columbia (15.8 percent, 1,500 jobs); Tennessee (8.6 percent, 8,700 jobs); and Pennsylvania (6.8 percent, 14,300 jobs). Texas (31,500 jobs, 5.6 percent) and Pennsylvania had the largest increases in the number of construction employees, followed by Virginia (8,500 employees, 4.8 percent). Construction employment declined between February 2010 and 2011 in 32 states, Simonson added. The largest percentage drop occurred in Nevada (-9.4 percent, -5,900 jobs) followed by Wisconsin (-9.0 percent, -8,700 jobs); Georgia (-8.4 percent, -12,800 jobs); and Colorado (-7.5 percent, -8,900 jobs). Florida (-15,800 jobs, -4.5 percent) had the largest number of year-over-year job losses, followed by New York (-14,200 jobs, -4.6 percent) and Georgia. Association officials cautioned that with total construction spending still declining and the prices contractors pay for most construction materials still rising, the construction industry remains fragile at best. They urged officials in Washington and in state capitals to review and act on the group’s recently released construction industry recovery plan “Building a Stronger Future.” “It is hard to see how the broader economy will be able to grow significantly while the construction unemployment rate remains above 20 percent,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “If we can find ways to stimulate private-sector demand, cut red tape and address aging infrastructure, we will put millions to work and boost overall economic growth.” Page Marin Builders Association ◆ Weekly Bulletin ◆ 6Page 6 www.marinba.org ◆ firstname.lastname@example.org JUNE 4TH & 5TH, 2011 Page Marin Builders Association ◆ Weekly Bulletin ◆7Page 7 www.marinba.org ◆ email@example.com MBA: Meet Your board members DiCK GhiLOtti GhiLOtti COnstRuCtiOn COMPAnY Richard “Dick” Ghilotti is the President and Owner of Ghilotti Construction Company (GCC). GCC has been headquartered in Santa Rosa since 1992, and in the last 15 years has grown from $12.5 million in annual revenue to a company with revenue in excess of $110 million. Born into the well-respected, multi-generational Ghilotti family, Dick got his start in the family business at the age of 13 by washing trucks and doing other odd jobs. Dick graduated from Marin Catholic High School in 1964 and continued his education at Santa Clara University, earning his degree in Finance in 1968. After college, Dick joined his Father and Uncle at Ghilotti Brothers Inc., and worked his way from an Equipment Operator to Manager of Operations. Following the death of his Father, Dick and his uncle divided the company, and during the economic recession in the early 1990’s went on to create Ghilotti Construction. Even as GCC weathers the current economic downturn, Dick’s leadership and business acumen have enabled GCC to purchase the assets of local competitor North Bay Construction in 2010. The two companies are on schedule to combine their operations by the end of 2012. Over the years, Dick has received numerous awards in recognition for his commitment and dedication to community service, and in acknowledgement of the excellence of his professional achievements in the public for-profit and non-profit sectors of the community. Two notable awards include the Marin Builders Association Construction Industry Man-Of-The-Year designation in 2004, and his election into the North Coast Builders Exchange Construction Hall of Fame in 2008.

BY: Phil Vermeulen, Legislative Advocate If your desire is to obtain a contractor’s license or yours is up for renewal, act now or spend more. A corporate officer wants to ‘duck and cover’ in an effort to avoid his responsibility. A twist in contractor’s law illustrates how your inactive CA contractor’s license can be useful to work out of state… Q. I read in your column that fees will be going up for various contractor license applications. When and by how much? A: Effective July 1, 2011, all CSLB fees will increase anywhere from 20% to 50%. For instance, Applications for Replacing a RMO or RME or Adding a new Classification will increase from $50.00 to $75.00. Applying for a new license (exam or waiver) will now total $480.00 up from $400.00. Active renewals increase to $360. By way of comparison, Nevada charges $900.00 for a new license application and $250.00 for replacing the Qualifier, while Arizona’s fees can run as high as $1,550 for a dual residential/commercial general license. Q: I’ve read about work that is incidental to my main contracting project. Can I use a licensed contractor to perform this type of work? A: Yes, according to Board Rule 831, to accomplish work that may be outside your trade, a specialty contractor may use subcontractors to complete essential work that is “incidental and supplemental” to the main project. Q: Who is required to register as a Home Improvement Salesperson? I’m a corporate officer but occasionally handle negotiations with the customer so does this law affect me? A: A corporate Officer of record (i.e. one listed with the CSLB on the license) is not required to register as a Home Improvement Salesperson. According to B&P Code 7152, in addition to Officers: General Partners, the Qualifying individual and salespeople involved with negotiations initiated by the buyer, are not subject to this registration requirement. Q: I’m an Officer on a contractor’s license. The company was recently hit with a judgment, which we cannot pay. We’re thinking of shutting down the corporation and starting a new company. Will this work or will the Contractors Board block our efforts? A: The court says you are responsible, so seeking to avoid the results of your actions won’t provide any ‘cover’ for this ‘exposure’. A court judgment affects all personnel listed on the license. Your name and that of each Officer will be “Red Flagged” which means the new license application would be rejected by the CSLB. Options to “clear” your name are: pay the judgment; work out a payment plan acceptable to the judgment Creditor; convince a court to overrule or stay the judgment; or declare bankruptcy. Q: My General license has been inactive for a few years. I have been looking at getting a license in either NV or AZ and understand they have a reciprocal agreement with CA. Can you tell me how this works? Will I need to sit for the test? Continued on next page Page Page Marin Builders Association ◆ Weekly Bulletin ◆ 10 10 www.marinba.org ◆ firstname.lastname@example.org A: Arizona and Nevada have similar reciprocity agreements with California. One of the differences relates to how each State view an Inactive license. AZ isn’t concerned if a CA license is Inactive as long as you have been licensed for more than 5 years –ON ONE LICENSE. NV will typically accept one or a combination of licenses that add up to 5 years; however, they must have been Active. The reciprocal agreement only relates to the Trade exam. Business/Law testing is still required. Each state requires completion of their license application; posting a Bond; verification of corporate registration (if applicable); and proof of Worker’s Compensation coverage. AZ also requires all contractors to secure a Transaction Privilege Tax number with the Department of Revenue. If applying for the trade waiver, you will need an official Verification of Licensure from the CSLB. While knowledge is power, knowing where to go for the answers is half the battle.

Gilead House, a transitional house for homeless women and their children, would appreciate your help! We are building a new home in downtown Novato that will provide shelter and a home for six (6) women and their children. During their stay at Gilead House, we help the women get jobs, learn how to budget, save, complete their education and offer other life skills leading to independent living and greater stability. The new house is over 5,000 square feet and is expected to cost $2.6M. As a non-profit organization we are working to reduce the overall costs with donations of materials and skilled labor. So far we have received several hundred thousand dollars. We are privileged to have had McLeran Roofing, Inc. (a Marin Builders Association member) provide the roof of the house as a donation. According to Brian McLeran, McLeran, Inc. President “this project touched me and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to support a project that helps the homeless children who so often fall through the cracks”. At this time we are looking for a carpet installer, and someone who can volunteer a maximum of one day to assist the volunteer contractor with finish electrical and/or finish plumbing. We would also appreciate a donation (or provide at cost) the following: plumbing fixtures, hardscape materials (pavers or concrete), electrical trim (canned light trim, wall receptacles, wall switches). Gilead House is truly a community project and a labor of love. You can be a part of this and make a difference in the lives of mothers and their children. Drive by the new house at 1024 7th Street in Novato. If you can participate and/or contribute in any way, please con- tact Jacque McLaughlin, Executive Director, 415-686-6950 or Jacque@gileadhouse.org. Check out our website at www.gileadhouse.org.
