Remove Exemption from Professional Licensure
The Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) is spearheading an effort to remove the industrial exemption from the professional engineers registration act. House Bill 1253 was recently introduced by Representative Mark Mustio (Republican, Allegheny County). This legislation is very similar to a bill from last session on which the House Professional Licensure Committee held a hearing public hearing and at which PSPE testified.
It has been a long standing goal of PSPE to remove the industry exemption from the law. House Bill 1253 does that as well as making a few other changes. It changes the title of Engineers In Training to Engineer Intern to make it consistent with the NCEES model law. It also cleans up language relating to distance education for Professional Development Hours and eliminates a couple of other little used exemptions currently in the law.
The bill has been referred to the House Professional Licensure committee. Follow this link to read the legislation.
