  324.925.  Political subdivisions to recognize statewide licensure — permissible acts by political subdivisions. — 1.  Political subdivisions shall not be prohibited from establishing their own local electrical contractor's license, but shall recognize a statewide license in lieu of a local license for the purposes of performing contracting work or obtaining permits to perform work within such political subdivision.  No political subdivision shall require the holder of a statewide license to obtain a local business or occupation license that requires passing of any examination or any special requirements to assess proficiency or mastery of the electrical trades.  The holder of a statewide license shall be deemed eligible to perform electrical contracting work and to obtain permits to perform said work from any political subdivision within the state of Missouri.

  2.  If a political subdivision does not recognize a statewide license in lieu of a local license for the purposes of performing contracting work or obtaining permits to perform work within the political subdivision, then a statewide licensee may file a complaint with the division.  The division shall perform an investigation into the complaint, and if the division finds that the political subdivision failed to recognize a statewide license in accordance with this section, then the division shall notify the political subdivision that the political subdivision has violated the provisions of this section and has thirty days to comply with the law.  If after thirty days the political subdivision still does not recognize a statewide license, then the division shall notify the director of the department of revenue who shall withhold any moneys the noncompliant political subdivision would otherwise be entitled to from local sales tax as defined in section 32.085 until the director has received notice from the division that the political subdivision is in compliance with this section.  Upon the political subdivision coming into compliance with the provisions of this section, the division shall notify the director of the department of revenue who shall disburse all funds held under this subsection.  Moneys held by the director of the department of revenue under this subsection shall not be deemed to be state funds and shall not be commingled with any funds of the state.

  3.  The provisions of this section shall not prohibit any political subdivision in this state from:

  (1)  Enforcing any code or law contained in this section;

  (2)  Implementing an electrical code based upon the National Electrical Code;

  (3)  Issuing an electrical contractor license or communication contractor license valid for that political subdivision;

  (4)  Requiring a business license to perform electrical contracting work;

  (5)  Issuing electrical contracting permits;

  (6)  Enforcing codes of the political subdivision;

  (7)  Inspecting the work of a statewide license holder; and

  (8)  Licensing electricians provided that such licenses are based upon professional experience and passage of a nationally accredited Electrical Assessment Examination that is administered on a routine and accessible schedule.

  4.  Political subdivisions that do not have the authority to issue or require electrical licenses prior to August 28, 2017, shall not be granted such authority under the provisions of this section.
