A bill that aims to give Kansas consumers more protections from potentially fraudulent roofing contractors is headed to Gov. Sam Brownback’s desk.
The proposal, which got a 100-22 vote in the House and a 35-4 endorsement in the Senate, sets up a new registration system for roofers, and it provides more oversight of companies that often flock to the state after major hail and wind storms.
House Bill 2024 requires roofing companies to show proof of insurance and workers compensation protection, in addition to other information lawmakers hope will let the state better track the companies.
