State Legislation

All 50 states and the District of Columbia have recognized that regulation of landscape architecture is necessary to protect the public health, safety, and welfare.

Legislation continues to be introduced throughout the country to either deregulate various occupations and/or institute occupational licensing reform measures. While the work of landscape architects clearly affects the public's health, safety, and welfare, it is not uncommon for state legislators to include our profession in broad occupational licensing reform proposals.

It’s imperative that your chapter actively work to educate your state and local lawmakers about the profession and its effect on health, safety, and welfare.
