Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation, mirroring SB 425, results from negotiations with ACCG and other stakeholders and changes several provisions relating to professional land surveyors.  Surveyors’ training hours are increased, but they no longer have to take five semester hours of training in hydrology.  Three semester hours of hydrology, and passage of a hydrology exam, are required if a surveyor seeks licensure to design storm water management plans, facilities, water distribution lines, or sanitary sewer collection systems.   Lastly, officers and employees of local governments or authorities engaged in gathering, processing, managing and sharing of geospatial and photogrammetric data for cataloging or mapping purposes are not required to be licensed surveyors.
