Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation requires structural engineers to be professionally certified by the State of Georgia.  It specifically defines structural engineers and structural engineering, then requires cities and counties to use only structural engineers for services "that could jeopardize the health, safety or welfare of the public."  Local building officials are required to maintain a permanent record of permit information indicating the structural engineer who has sealed the plans of building permits.  There are several exemptions, including local elected officials.
