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. 

The Granite State Section of the Boston Chapter successfully advocated for a landscape architecture practice act in 2006 and have fought back attempts to sunset their licensure in recent years. New Hampshire landscape architects will remain vigilant to ensure that additional efforts to deregulate the profession in New Hampshire are also thwarted.

If you are concerned about attempts to deregulate landscape architecture in your state, visit www.asla.org/licensure for tools on how to communicate the benefits of a licensed profession, or contact ASLA Government Affairs Director Julia Lent at jlent@asla.org for more information.
