Support Certification of Professional Geologists in VA!

I strongly support the current regulation within the VAC to require certification of those who apply the principles of Geology to the daily lives of Virginians! This regulatory requirement has been long-standing and key to protect the public health, safety, and welfare to those that depend on the judgement and experience of Professional Geologists who work every day to support the design and construction of our built environment.  Other professionals in the design, construction and mining industries rely on the judgement, experience, and recommendations of Professional Geologists to develop the facilities, structures, and water systems that Virginians depend on daily.  As a Certified Professional Geologist and registered Professional Engineer in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I strongly support maintaining the current regulation requiring certification of Professional Geologists to practice within the Commonwealth.
