As many of you are aware TSPS had a very successful legislative session. We were fortunate to have several bills go in our favor and others that were potentially negative to us were defeated. It is rare that we are successful with a bill that is as directly beneficial to us as HB 7 which eliminated the occupational licensing fee of $200 for more than 600,000 Texans. This is a $200 annual savings to you as a professional land surveyor. If you continue renewing your license for the next 10 years it saves you $2,000. Not too bad, right?
SurPAC contributions last year helped make this possible as we were very well received at the Capitol. Now is a good time to think ahead and show support for our Governmental Affairs Committee along with all the members who participated in this success. Please consider contributing all or a portion of your $200 saving to SurPAC. These contributions will help us prepare for the 2017 Legislative Session and Sunset Review in 2019.
Thank you for your consideration. Please contact me or anyone on the Governmental Affairs Committee if you have any question or thoughts on this matter. We are looking forward to working with you.
With our Sincere Gratitude,
Jerry Fults, Chair SurPAC Committee
