Time is running out for most of the surveying-related bills at the Statehouse this session.


Both the House and Senate's committee deadlines are Feb. 27. That means any bill that hasn't passed committee by the final gavel this Thursday will effectively die for this legislative session.


Four of the five remaining bills that ISPLS has been following are still in committee at this point:

The one bill that has made it out of committee is HB 1014: Plan CommissionsFor the purposes of the advisory planning law, the bill would require a county surveyor's designee to be a resident of the county to serve on the county plan commission, regardless of if they are a permanent designee or only filling a vacancy or serving as an alternate.


HB 1014 passed out of the Senate Committee on Local Government without opposition, and the full chamber moved it forward without offering any amendments. It has one final vote left in the full Senate. If that passes, it will head to Gov. Eric Holcomb's desk for consideration.


Updates on all these bills will be included in next week's ISPLS newsletter and here on through the rest of the legislative session.
