  • Legislative Counsel Bureau Legal Opinion Regarding SB 268 (1/24/12)
    The Regulations relating 
    to the State Board of Professional Engineers and the State Board of Architecture, Interior Design and Residential Design were deferred on October 26, 2011, by the Legislative Commission to a future hearing.
    The Regulations provide for the issuance and renewal of Certificates of Eligibility to receive certain preferences when competing for public works.  The Commission’s decision was due to the dollar amount of the annual Modified Business Tax that would exclude small local firms from meeting the qualifications to receive the preference.
