Good News From Florida

On March 24,  the House Economic Affairs Committee voted to approve a committee substitute for HB 5005, which would have deregulated landscape architecture.  The substitute language removes landscape architecture from the bill along with deregulation for several other professions.   ASLA sends its congratulations to its Florida Chapter, which heeded the call to action and successfully advocated against this bill on behalf of the profession.   Your advocacy efforts, in conjunction with the diligence of your legislative affairs consultant, have made possible this apparent victory over this piece of crippling legislation.   Congratulations, Florida ASLA!
