Q&A: Plumbing and electrical ads


From the Spencer Evening World:

Q: Must plumb­ing or electrical service ads include a license number?

A: The answer is yes for plumbing services but no for electricians. I have no idea why the state legislature differentiated between the two profes­sions in advertising.
