Arizona House Bill 2613 proposes to deregulate several professional categories. While it doesn’t include surveyors, it does hit pretty close to home. Passage of HB2613 would deregulate assayers, geologists, landscape architects, cremationists, athletic trainers and citrus packers. The concern, as observed among online sources including SurveyorConnect and the Facebook page for United Surveyors of Arizona, is that this could be the beginning of a trend.
