PSPE Legislative Activity

PSPE's lobbyists have been busy at the capitol. Following are highlights of some issues on which they are working. Complete details can be found on the PSPE website under Legislative Activity.

  • Transportation Funding Still a Topic of Conversation
  • State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists September 18 Meeting Highlights
  • Registration Law Amendments

A bill to amend the Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law has been introduced in the PA House of Representatives. That legislation makes significant changes to the title protection and exemptions sections of the Act. House Bill 1447, as introduced by Representative Marc Gergely, reflects changes first recommended by the PA Society of Professional Engineers Registration Act Task Force. Along its way to introduction there were alterations made to the document based on feedback from members and legislators. The bill has been referred to the House Professional Licensure committee. Some highlights of House Bill 1447 are:

  • Elimination of the industrial exemption as it applies to engineers, land surveyors and geologists
  • Changing the protected title from “engineer” to “professional engineer”
  • Changing the term “engineer in training” to “engineer intern”
  • Clarifying that electronic seals are permissible
