Some New Legislation Among the bills introduced and signed by the governor in the 1973-74 period was one called AB 630 which revises the definition of contractor to provide that any work .done on or about a mobile home or mobile home accessory building upon the site of such mobile home would be required to have a state contractor's license. The licenses which qualify are a B license or a specialty C61. This law is now in effect. Another bill which became law chaptered in 1973 permits the board of supervisors and legislative bodies of other specified entities to establish sewer standby or immediate availability charges. This bill came about as a result of efforts of the Humboldt County board of supervisors attempting to render a service in corridors which must be served by the County on the fringes of cities.
