TSPS advocated for the continuation of the TBPLS throughout the review process.  During its January 26th meeting the TSPS Board voted to support the SAC recommendations in the Sunset Bill and to further advocate for an amendment creating a land surveying advisory committee and increasing the number of RPLSs on the new Board. TSPS will also seek sponsorship in the Legislature for a Safety Net Bill to continue the TBPLS for two years in the event the Sunset Bill is not passed by both chambers and signed by the Governor. 

To help support the TSPS recommended amendment, make plans to meet your fellow surveyor at The Capitol Grill on Wednesday, March 13th.
