New Hampshire Legislature Rejects Deregulation Bill
Last week a bill that would have deregulated landscape architecture in New Hampshire was defeated in the Statehouse. HB 446 would have made licensure voluntary for a number of professions, including landscape architecture, and was defeated by a vote of 214–116. Granite State activists have been vigorously opposing HB 446 and educating legislators on the public health, safety, and welfare benefits provided by licensed landscape architects.
