Such roster, which shall include a copy of the licensing law, shall be printed by the board out of funds of the board, as provided in Section 34-8-25, and a copy mailed to and placed on file by the clerk of each incorporated city and town in the state and to and by the probate judge of each county in the state.

On or before March 1 of each year, the board shall submit to the Governor a report of its transactions for the preceding year and shall file with the Secretary of State a copy of such report, together with a complete statement of receipts and expenditures of the board, attested by the affidavit of the chairman and secretary and a copy of the roster of licensed general contractors.

It shall be the duty of the secretary-treasurer to investigate and report to the board each complaint filed relative to violation of this chapter.
