  • In accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:953, the Louisiana State Plumbing Board (board), hereby determines that adoption of an Emergency Rule for the implementation of amendments to LAC 46:LV.101, 301, 303, 304, 310, 311, 312, 313, 314, 315, 316, 901, 1001, 1003 and 1005 and adoption of §§309 and 508 are necessary to be in compliance with recent legislative changes designated as Act No. 515 of 2016. The Rule change to §§101, 301, 303, 309, 310, 312, 901 and 1001 establishes the designation of tradesman plumbers and will also provide licensing requirements and procedures relative to the tradesman plumber classification. The Rule change to §508 establishes and maintains a registry of apprentice plumbers employed within the state of Louisiana. The addition of the tradesman plumber classification resulted in the insertion of a new Rule, causing a change in the Sections formerly numbered as §§307-313, as well as a change to cross-referencing of Sections throughout the rules.



  • Public Comments- Any interested person may submit written comments regarding the content of this proposed Rule change to Ashley Jones Tullier, Executive Director of the Board, 11304 Cloverdale Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA, no later than 5 p.m., March 20, 2017.
