NEW $1.00 STATE OF CALIFORNIA FEE FOR NEW OR RENEWAL OF BUSINESS LICENSES

GOES INTO EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2013

On September 19, 2012 Governor Brown signed into law SB-1186 which adds a state fee of $1 on any applicant for a

 local business license or similar instrument or permit, or renewal thereof.  The purpose is to increase disability access  

and compliance with construction-related accessibility requirements and to develop educational resources for businesses

 in order to facilitate compliance with federal and state disability laws, as specified.


Under federal and state law, compliance with disability access laws is a serious and significant responsibility that applies

 to all California building owners and tenants with buildings open to the public.  You may obtain information about your

 legal obligations and how to comply with disability access laws at the following agencies:
