Certificate of Merit Bill Dies in the Senate

The AIA-backed bill requiring a certificate of merit for design professionals, SB 5833, died today when it failed to pass the Senate. The AIA/WA had been working very hard to get the bill brought to the Senate floor before the deadline today for bills to pass out of their house of origin.
The AIA/WA thanks all of its members who contacted their Senators in support of the bill in the past week. While the bill hit a barrier this year, we will look to bring it back in the 2008 Legislature.
