Budget Message Given the unprecedented economic downturn in the local, state, and national economy, and spiraling decline in property values, the LA State Licensing Board for Contractors continues to bolster a strong financial footing. This has been made possible due to the great constraints exhibited by the guidance of the Executive Director, the Board, and all of the staff that works at the LA State Licensing Board for Contractors. These shared goals are expressed each year in our budget. It spells out our needs, quantifies what we can afford, and sets in motion the initiatives and corrective measures that will keep us on a true course. Whatever circumstances we face, be assured that we will run this agency in a fiscally responsible way.
