Bill- If you really look at the big picture, the $200 "bonus" times the number of Texas engineers (eventhough it is "free revenue") when compared to the State of Texas overall budget is really chump change. It may make the folks at the Texas professional engineers board feel good, and maybe claim they pay their own way. But in reality it is just a fly speck in the overall budget. ;<) Regards, Bill Cain, S.E.

Note the wildly varying rates of "pass/fail" from year to year; also the way some states (my own being a very good example) have decided to open the floodgates from time to time to let in all who desire passage. Since Texas tacks on a $200 "bonus" for revenues into the general fund each time you relicense, that has become a lucrative racket.
