What is the purpose of the Minnesota electrical contractor bond?

Minnesota Statutes Section 326B.33 Subdivision 15 requires electrical contractors file a $25,000 surety bond for state licensing. State form CC0516 is officially titled the “Electrical Contractor Surety Bond” and requires you to comply with all laws, ordinances, and rules for your electrical work license (as found in the Minnesota Rules Chapter 1315 Electrical Code) and faithfully perform any permit applied for or contract entered into. If you fail to do so, your issuing surety company will pay valid claims to harmed individuals up to your full $25,000 bond amount, which you must reimburse.
