Sec. 08.18.171. Definitions. (4) "contractor" means a person who, in the pursuit of an independent business, undertakes or offers to perform, or claims to have the capacity to perform, or submits a bid for a project to construct, alter, repair, move, or demolish a building, highway, road, railroad, or any type of fixed structure, including excavation and site development and erection of scaffolding; "contractor" includes a general contractor, builder, mechanical contractor, specialty contractor, and subcontractor; 3:34:17 PM CHAIR HUGHES asked for an explanation of changes from version B to version G. MR. PHELPS stated that the CS is in response to a point the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development (DCCED) made about home inspectors being required to provide the same identification information as contractors. He reviewed the following explanation of changes from version B to version G for SB 181: Section 1 AS 08.18.051 (b) Page 1, Line 3 through Page 1, Line 12 Removes the definition of "landing page" from this section and places it in section 3.

Section 2 AS 08.18.053 (b) Page 1, Line 13 through Page 2, Line 6 Adds a section which offers a similar opportunity for home inspectors regulated under AS.08.18.053 as was made for contractors under AS.08.18.051 in section 1. The amendment language is identical in both sections. Section 3 AS 08.18.171 Page 2, Line 7 through Page 2, Line 10 Moves the definition of "landing page" from AS.08.18.051 to AS.08.18.171 which is the definitions section for all of chapter 18. 3:36:11 PM CHAIR HUGHES removed her objection; finding no further objection or questions, she asked the will of the committee. 3:36:21 PM SENATOR MYERS moved to report SB 181, work order 32-LS1404\G, from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal notes. 3:36:33 PM At ease. 3:36:44 PM CHAIR HUGHES reconvened the meeting and announced that without objection, CSSB 181(CRA) was reported from the Senate Community and Regional Affairs Standing Committee.
