> 
> 
>       The California Assembly is currently considering a bill that would 
> dissolve a number of professional boards, including the California Board for 
> Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. A.B. 1024 was introduced on 
> February 22nd by Assembly Member Marian Walters (R-CA73) and is currently 
> awaiting action by the Assembly.
> 
>       We are asking ASCE Members to call, write, fax and email letters to 
> their state legislators to OPPOSE this bill. In February, 60 ASCE Members 
> from the California Sections visited Sacramento to voice their opposition to 
> this bill. We are hoping that all California ASCE Members will get involved 
> to oppose this bill. The public interest is best served when the judgment of 
> technical qualifications and evaluation of professional competence are made 
> by state licensure boards with members who are themselves licensed 
> professional engineers and land surveyors.
> 
> 
>       The idea of abolishing these professional boards was first put forth 
> in last year's California Performance Review and has the backing of Governor 
> Arnold Schwarzenegger. The California Performance Review can be viewed at 
> http://cpr.ca.gov/.
