NJ LA Practice Act passed by the legislature

The NJ ASLA has succeeded in getting the NJ Legislature to pass the NJ Practice Act:
The New Jersey Chapter of ASLA is proud to announce that Monday, June 23, 2008 was a red letter day for NJASLA, as the bill that will upgrade the “Title Act” (protecting only the use of the word Landscape Architect for state Certified Landscape Architects) to a “Practice Act” that defines an inclusionary scope of work and duties that a state licensed Landscape Architect may perform and submit to government agencies, including “overlapping” practices in common with other professionals in the land development field. The new Act provides for all actively certified landscape architects to be automatically elevated to practice license status.
