SENATE BILL 297 Relating to professions regulated by the State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying; and declaring an emergency.
Revises qualifications for registration to practice professional engineering, land surveying or photogrammetric mapping. Click here for details. The PEO official position is that we are in support of SB297 as written by OSBEELS only. Governor Brown siged on June 27th.
Thank you - Michael Hardy, Matt Cash, Tamara Johnson, David Bassett for your work on this bill. Michael Hardy noted "Now we just need to continue monitoring the Bill as it progresses through the legislative process to make sure nobody else tries to tack anything else on to it. Then after that, we need to participate in OSBEELS' rulemaking process that implements the bill."
