HOUSE BILL NO. 601

AS AMENDED BY SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 24 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYORS.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

WHEREAS, historically the procedure for renewing the license of professional larid surveyors in the event of expiration followed a specific pattern which was set forth in the'Delaware Ccide, and

WHEREAS, several years ago, the method for renewing the expired certificate of a professional land surveyor was changed by an act of the General Assembly, and

WHEREAS, confusion has resulted from the changed procedure, especially since there is no provision that specific notice be given to registered land surveyors of the time to renew his or her certificate, and

WHEREAS, it is desirable to re-establish the pre-existing procedure, and

WHEREAS, it is desirable to afford individuals who were adversely affected by the change in procedure an opportunity to have their certificates reinstated by a method consistent with the pre-existing law;

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend §2729, Chapter 27, Title 24 of the Delaware Code by adding, to the last paragraph of said section, the following sentence:

"The Board shall have authority to waive the renewal provisions of this section, and to permit renewal for any person whose registration has lapsed; provided however, that such authority shall cease and not be effective after June 30, 1982."

Approved April 15, 1982.
