amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
    Subd. 11.  [ACTIONS AGAINST LAPSED LICENSE.] If a license

civil penalty as provided for in subdivision 6.

    Subd. 4.  [LICENSEE.] "Licensee" means a residential 
building contractor, remodeler, roofer, or specialty contractor 
licensed under sections 326.83 to 326.98. 
    Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 326.83, is
