A new legislation that passed here in Oregon was one that will change my business from a landscaping business to a "Landscape Contracting Business". I will no longer be a landscape contractor, but a "Landscape Construction Professional". I don't know if I like that. They say the reason is to distinguish between the business and the individual. Golly gee, was it that difficult? The world seems to revolve around the phrase of "contractor", contractor discounts, contractor supplies, contractor boards, contractor associations, and so forth. It seems to me that any person can call themselves a professional, but a contractor indicates that the person has passed some requirements and jumped through at least a few hoops to get where he is. Now I'll have a contracting business without a contractor. Does that make sense? Oye vey mi amigos! What are your thoughts? Continuing education requirements also passed. More demands, more money changing hands, more covert operations will occur, and more state generated revenues from enforcement actions (fines). All for a step forward, eh?
