GIS bills gone

February 22, 2017

HB 2145 (LeMunyon) died in Senate General Laws Committee, meeting the same fate as its Senate counterpart SB 1572 (Stanley). This bill would have required that most GIS work could only be done by licensed land surveyor photogrammetrists. This would add a cost to localities who would have had to hire licensed consultants or to have all their people go through the license process in order to do GIS work. The bill sought to eliminate a long standing negotiated exemption for GIS work in the law.
