Senate Bill No. 423

(By Senator Bailey)


[Introduced January 31, 2003; referred to the Committee on Government Organization.]


A BILL to amend and reenact section six, article thirteen-a, chapter thirty of the code of West Virginia, one thousand nine hundred thirty-one, as amended, relating to fees for renewal of license to practice land surveying; and allowing the board of examiners of land surveyors to set certain fees by rule.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That section six, article thirteen-a, chapter thirty of the code of West Virginia, one thousand nine hundred thirty-one, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:
§30-13A-6. Issuance of license; notice of expiration; renewal; renewal fee; display.

(a) Whenever the board finds that an applicant meets all of the requirements of this article for a license to engage in the practice of land surveying, it shall forthwith issue to such person such the license. and otherwise If the board finds that the applicant does not meet the requirement, it shall deny the same. All licenses, whether original or renewal, shall expire on the thirtieth day of June following the date of issuance or renewal.
(b) The secretary-treasurer of the board shall mail to every licensee, at least thirty days prior to the expiration of such a license, notice of the expiration date and the amount of the renewal fee. A license may be renewed without examination upon application for a renewal on a form prescribed by the board and payment to the board of an annual renewal fee of forty sixty-five dollars: Provided, That the board is authorized to establish or adjust the amount of renewal fees by legislative rule: Provided, however, That the renewal fee set forth in this section shall remain in effect until the effective date of the legislative rule authorized by this section.
(c) If a license is not renewed when due, the fee shall increase one dollar per month for each month or fraction thereof that such the renewal fee is not paid, up to a maximum of thirty-six months.
(d) No license shall may be renewed after expiration of said period of thirty-six months. and The fact that a license cannot be renewed because of the expiration of said period of thirty-six months shall may not prevent such the person from making application for a new license.
(e) The board may deny any application for renewal for any reason which would justify the denial of an original application for a license.
(f) The board shall prescribe the form of licenses and each such license shall be conspicuously displayed by the licensee at his or her principal place of practice.
(g) A duplicate license may be issued upon payment of a fee of ten dollars.

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to authorize the board of examiners of land surveyors to set renewal fees by legislative rule.
