HB 3166, authored by Representative Callegari, that would create an agency that combines the Engineering, Architech and Surveyors Boards will not get out of Calendars Committee. This means that it will not go to the House Floor for a vote.

This bill did not specifically address Geoscientists but was an important bill to monitor. The likely outcome now will be an interim report on the feasibility of merging certain professional license agencies. This could include Geoscientists. While a merger in itself is not a bad idea, the way that it may go about it could have detrimental ramifications.

TAPG will continue to monitor any interim studies that may affect the TBPG.
