When Executive Director Joe Jones is traveling in the state, he is setting up meetings with legislators to discuss the pending rewrite of the engineers’ and surveyors’ practice act.
Thus far, he and five engineers representing ACEC-SC and SCSPE met with Senator Ross Turner in Greenville and he, and two ACEC-SC members met with Representative Nelson Hardwick in Myrtle Beach.
In both meetings, the legislators were told the importance of passing the practice act in full. Sen. Turner is a member of the Senate Labor Commerce and Industry Committee, where the senate version of the bill will be heard, and Representative Hardwick is the main sponsor of the House bill. He is also Chair of the House Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee.
Jones is scheduled to be in Charleston Nov. 14 where he hopes to have ACEC-SC and SCSPE members join him for legislative visits there.
