Legislative
Status: 
Carried over to the 2018 Legislative Session on 6/22/2017.
Summary: 

Establishes a committee to review occupational licensing and determine which licenses could be made optional for practitioners. The Executive Departments and Administration Committee deemed the bill inexpedient to legislate and died in committee. NSPE communicated with the New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers to ensure the professional engineer was protected. The professional engineering community in New Hampshire was critical in defeating passage of this bill and protecting the integrity of the PE license. This measure is eligible for reconsideration during the 2018 Legislative Session.
