It has been found by the General Assembly that:
(1) Certain persons continuously violate Arkansas law requiring that they first obtain the proper registration, licensure, and training for construction of water wells and that such persons do not have the required bond to protect well owners;
(2) Construction of water wells by those persons is a threat to the general health, safety, and welfare because the Commission on Water Well Construction does not have knowledge of their actions and has no means of holding them accountable for failure to develop water in an orderly, sanitary, reasonable, and safe manner; and
(3) Because those persons pose a great threat to the people of Arkansas, the commission must have the ability to obtain the forfeiture of the property of violators.
