If the principal fails to make the appropriate payments, the surety will compensate the state for any financial losses. These bonds are not required of all contractors in the state. The state might require a contractor to post this bond if the department experienced collection problems while a new license applicant was engaged in business under a prior license or if a new license applicant had a previous license revoked.
