FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 25, 2012
AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation Enforcement Division carries out “stings” across the state to catch unlicensed businesses that offer to perform electrical services. It is against the law to perform electrical work or maintenance without a license.
The following individuals were caught in TDLR “stings” and issued Cease and Desist Orders during the first quarter of 2012:
Handy Dan Affordable and Professional Work (Daniel Cabrera) - Austin
Martin Cervantes - Austin
Goodwin Solutions (Bart Goodwin) - Kyle
Texans want to keep their families safe by using licensed Electrical Contractors because:
- They have passed an examination proving they meet or surpass subject competency requirements,
- They must carry insurance, and
- Submit to and pass a criminal background check.
Visit the TDLR web site to view licensed electricians in your area. You may also search for past violations in which a final order was issued against companies/contractors: www.license.state.tx.us.
