    So true but also beware those who are using/operating under another's license (RME).

    Being from NYS myself you are absolutely correct. There is no state wide law but each county and a lot of municipalities have their own local laws with seemingly no rhythm or reason so I would tread lightly on this and examine the precise language of the relevant laws if any.

    Here is the question I have not seen asked, I could be wrong, but are they unlicensed in the location of the project, but hold one or more licenses in other locations within the state or country?

    Also, what are the reasons for not applying for a licenses for the location of the work, to small a project, to much red tape?

    If its a large enough project why not?
