Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Flag
For their state motto, Pennsylvania didn't plagiarize one of the ever-popular Latin phrases from Cicero's quote of the month club that were hummed throughout the workday by most Americans.  The host state of our nation's first capital quickly coined: Virtue, Liberty, and Independence. And they've lived up to it in construction licensing. You're at liberty to work independently throughout Pennsylvania without a state license. However, you will be required to be licensed in local jurisdictions.

You will have to contact the project city to identify if your contractor is licensed.
