RE: Texas PE Criminal Background Check Instructions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don’t have a problem with complying with the law, it's no different 
than fulfilling my PDH requirements, etc.

It’s the complete lack of due diligence on the part of the Texas State 
Board to assure that the process would be as easy for out-of state 
applications as in-state residents.

Is it harder for me to comply with the Texas PDH  requirements, or even get 
 my original reciprocity than an instate application, no it is not, so why 
is this background check being made to be so difficult for out of state

No engineering society raised an issue about this when it was being debated 
 in the state legislature. It was passed, is now in operation and still no 
outcry from any but a few individuals. I read the publications of several 
organizations and I have not found anything written against this.

 From my research, this legislation was backed by Homeland Security. Right 
now it seems that going against this law is like pi**ing into the wind, you 
 are just going to get wet.
