Title 10, Chapter 47 for judgments. Title 10, Chapter 81 for SOL. Title 30, Chapter 23 (11) for collection agency/mercantile agency license fee.
District of Columbia-
Division II, Title 12 for SOL. Division II, Title 15 for judgments.
District of Columbia Code - There are no laws specific to collection agencies.
However, 28-3905 (k)(1) allows you to sue a collection agency for violations of the FDCPA and if you win, damages can exceed FDCPA award limits.
To my knowledge, no license or bonding required for collection agencies.
Title VIII, Chapter 95 deals with SOL. Title VI deals with judgments. Title XXXIII, Chapter 559, Part VI deals with CA.
Chapter 9 deals with SOL and judgments. Title 18 may be of interest.
To the best of my knowledge, Georgia does not require licensing or bonding of collection agencies.
Title 5, Chapter 2 deals with SOL. Title 26, Chapter 22 deals with CA. A few different titles deal with judgments.
Includes links to the Idaho Collection Agency Act and the Idaho Credit Code and other valuable links.
Chapter 225 deals with CA. Chapter 735, Article XIII, Part 2 deals with SOL.
Find SOL and judgment information in Chapter 34, Chapter 25 for Collection Agencies.

Title XIII, Subtitle 3, Chapter 537 is the Consumer Credit Code. Chapter 537, Sections 537.7101-537.7103 is the debt collection practices act. Title XV, Subtitle 3 is where you can find information regarding judgments and SOL.
To my knowledge, Iowa does not require CA to be either licensed or bonded.
