Senate Study Bill 2150

Bill Text

PAG LIN
  1  1    Section 1.  Section 542B.14, subsection 1, paragraph a,
  1  2 Code 1997, is amended by adding the following new
  1  3 subparagraph:
  1  4    NEW SUBPARAGRAPH.  (4)  For applicants who obtained an
  1  5 associate of science degree or a more advanced degree between
  1  6 July 1, 1983, and June 30, 1988, in lieu of compliance with
  1  7 subparagraph (1), the board shall only require compliance with
  1  8 the provisions of subparagraph (3) with regard to areas of
  1  9 study and practical experience.  Applicants qualifying under
  1 10 this subparagraph must meet the requirements of paragraph "b",
  1 11 by June 30, 2001.  
  1 12                           EXPLANATION
  1 13    This bill relates to the requirements for licensure as a
  1 14 professional engineer pursuant to Code section 542B.14,
  1 15 subsection 1.  Beginning July 1, 1988, pursuant to Code
  1 16 section 542B.14, subsection 1, paragraph "a", subparagraph
  1 17 (1), an applicant, in order to take an examination in
  1 18 fundamental engineering subjects, must have graduated from a
  1 19 four-year course in engineering.  Previously, an applicant
  1 20 could qualify for the examination if the individual had
  1 21 completed a two-year course in engineering and had six years
  1 22 of practical experience.  Pursuant to paragraph "a",
  1 23 subparagraph (3), however, applicants were given a "window"
  1 24 period, until June 30, 1991, during which they could continue
  1 25 to qualify for the examination with a two-year degree and six
  1 26 years of experience.  Individuals who had graduated from a
  1 27 two-year program prior to the law change, and embarked on a
  1 28 six-year period of practical experience, but had not completed
  1 29 the six years by June 30, 1991, were left unable to qualify
  1 30 for the examination after the law change.  The bill addresses
  1 31 this by providing that individuals obtaining a two-year degree
  1 32 between July 1, 1983, and June 30, 1988, will be able to
  1 33 qualify for the examination based on the two-year degree and
  1 34 six-years of experience requirements of subparagraph (3).  The
  1 35 bill provides that an applicant to whom the bill applies has
  2  1 until June 30, 2001, to complete testing pursuant to Code
  2  2 section 542B.14, subsection 1, paragraph "b".
