Introduced by Rep. Aric Nesbitt (R) on February 10, 2015 To exempt residential lift installers from the comprehensive licensure and regulatory regime that applies to regular elevator contractors. Instead, installers would have to be certified by the lift's manufacturer and carry a $2 million liability insurance policy. This would greatly increase the number of professionals allowed to install stairway chairlifts and platform lifts in private residences for elderly or handicapped individuals.
