California Unlicsensed Contractors- BEWARE

I felt this one need its own.

AB 370 - Unlicensed contractors.
Makes a first conviction of unlicensed activity punishable by a fine not exceeding $5,000 or by imprisonment in a county jail for no more than 6 months or both. Requires the fine for a second conviction be the greater of 20% of the contract price, 20% of the aggregate payments made to the unlicensed contractor, or $5,000. Requires that a third or subsequent conviction be punishable by both a fine and imprisonment in a county jail, and requires that the fine be no less than $5,000 and no more than the greater of $10,000, 20% of the contract price, or 20% of the aggregate payments made to the unlicensed contractor.
