SCS/SB 478 - This act includes landscape architects in statutes concerning the right to practice and the use of a personal seal. Currently, only architects, professional engineers and professional land surveyors are included in such sections.
This act creates an inactive license status for architects. An inactive licensee shall not practice as an architect in this state, but may continue to use the title "architect". In order to reinstate such license to active status, the licensee must meet certain competency requirements established by the board of architects, professional engineers, professional land surveyors and landscape architects.
An inactive license status is created for psychologists. An
inactive licensed psychologist shall not hold himself or herself
out as being professionally engaged in the regular practice of
psychology and shall not engage in the regular practice of
psychology. Inactive licensees do not have to complete
continuing education. An inactive licensee may reactivate the
license by completing a committee-approved application, paying
required fees, and submitting proof of current competency.
