Senate Roll Call 191 on
2017 House Bill 5001: Impose licensure mandate on professional foresters

Passed 32 to 2 in the Senate on April 12, 2018.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To impose a new licensure mandate on professional foresters (styled by the bill as registration), with a $200 fee, regulations, education and experience requirements, and more. The bill would create a state board comprised of officials and individuals currently in this or related businesses, which would devise specific rules, requirements and restrictions. The mandate would be in the state natural resources and environment law, not the state occupations code. This is related to new procedures for getting property tax breaks on small forestland parcels in a 2016 law that required property owners to engage the services of a forester to apply.
