As you no doubt recall, our professional license was among many being considered for deregulation. The MiASLA immediately engaged on this issue and continues to advocate for the continuation of our license on behalf of all licensed landscape architects across our state. If you are like me, you are anxious for continuous updates, and I wanted to share with you a current update of the Chapter activities on the deregulation topic.

Congratulations to all Michigan Landscape Architects on the passage of the Landscape Architecture Practice Act!
January 12, 2009, Governor Granholm signed HB 5025 and HB 5026 into law under Public Acts 490 and 491, thus regulating the practice of landscape architecture in the State of Michigan rather than merely protecting the right to use the title ‘landscape architect.’ Full licensure levels the playing field for Michigan Landscape Architects by eliminating a competitive disadvantage on a state, regional and national basis for related work and improves our economic businesses standing.
