Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

36-31-11Expiration of license--Renewal--Fee--Restoration of forfeited license--Time limit--Continuing competency requirements.

Any license issued by the board, pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, shall expire on the first day of January of the year next succeeding the issuance thereof. A license may be renewed upon the payment of a fee to be fixed annually by the board. Failure of a licensee to renew his license on or before the first day of March of each year, constitutes a forfeiture of such license. However, any person who has forfeited his license under this chapter may have it restored to him by making written application thereof and by payment of the annual renewal fee for the current year and late renewal fee. Late renewal of a license may not be granted more than five years after its expiration. The board may establish, pursuant to chapter 1-26, additional requirements for license renewal which provide evidence of continuing competency.
