  • PUBLIC STATEMENT BY KSBTP

    At a special Board Meeting of the Kansas State Board of Technical Professions today, May 19, 2014, the Board approved the following statement to address recent concerns regarding Senate Bill 349 which will go into effect on July 1, 2014.

    "With Governor Brownback signing SB349 on April 17, 2014, the Kansas State Board of Technical Professions (KSBTP) completed four years of effort to update Kansas Statutes 74-7001 to 74-7046 which authorize the Board to administer and enforce the licensure of five technical professions within the State of Kansas.  During this time period, Board representatives met numerous times with six professional societies representing the five technical professions to receive their input and agreement.  The new law is effective on July 1, 2014.

    Recently concerns have arisen about the interpretation of certain provisions of SB349. Based on the KSBTP interpretation of the statutes, the KSBTP will not pursue any properly Kansas licensed Architect, Landscape Architect, Professional Engineer, Professional Geologist, or Professional Surveyor for preparing, sealing, and submitting any plan, drawings, specifications and/or technical submittals resulting from professional services within their individual area of expertise.  If further clarification of the statutes is necessary, then legislation will be requested and pursued during the 2015 Kansas legislative session."
