Threats to Professional Licensure: State List


Other: A legislative, regulatory, or executive action that falls outside other threat categories but requires attention by professional engineers.
Legislative/Executive Order/Regulatory:
Bill Number:
Signed by Governor on 6/2/2016.

Makes various revisions related to the review of professional regulation; it also provides that a licensed professional engineer may practice design without a license under the "potable water supply and wastewater system designers" provisions if he or she satisfies the criteria set forth in 10 V.S.A. § 1975(b). The bill, now enacted into law, challenges the fundamental tenets of licensure and places a host of requirements that must be met for licensure to be warranted. NSPE has communicated with state leadership on this issue to ensure that this will not negatively impact the PE. NSPE and state leadership are closely monitoring the state Board's actions moving forward.
