House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 8, 2017 02:58 PM
From: Representative Joe Emrick
To: All House members
Subject: Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law - Amendments
In the near future, I will introduce legislation that amends the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law. The legislation makes a number of changes to current exemptions and cleans up some loose continuing education language. Those provisions were overwhelmingly passed by the House last year as part of House Bill 1704 (187-3), and then unanimously by the Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee.

This session’s bill will also include a provision that will alleviate some confusion created by a recent court decision involving the practice of both engineering and land surveying. It is supported by the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers and the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors. It makes clear that the practice of these professions can occur even if there is not a “design” per se.

The passage of this legislation will bring about a safer Pennsylvania without creating an undue burden on the engineering, and land surveying community.

Thank you.

Introduced as HB1106
