<< But I would think that further clarification is in order at the state and
local levels, since questions about this arise frequently. This is even
more true now that electronic signatures are possible. Being able to use
an electronic signature would seem advantageous.

I think you are right....further, it is important to discover the reasoning
behind the Board's decision to implement this rule. Is it for the consumer's
protection, or rather a measure of protection for the enginner....I can see
at least one advantage to the engineer in this scenario....the engineer of
record can be satisfied and assured that only documents he actually signed
will be presented to third parties ...
and to Ben Youssefi,
I did try to send my thanks in private, for some reasons it came on the
list..I'll be more careful next time...sorry for any inconvenience...
