Possible temporary state government shutdown July 1

State government may temporarily shut down on July 1, 2015, unless a new state operating budget is enacted by then. Under a shutdown scenario, the Business Licensing System (BLS) will be shutdown and the BLS system will NOT be available to accept license applications and renewals.

Other impacts:

  • Licensing fees and revenues will not be funded to partners
  • Business licenses and renewals will not be mailed
  • BLS staff will not be available

The BLS website will be available to provide licensing information and partners should be able to access their designated BLS subsystems.

BLS Call Center Closed from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays


The BLS call center will be closed from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through July 10 to allow time for processing licensing application and renewals due to a temporary increase in workload. 

Thank you for your patience.
