Support of Licensure for Geologists

I support the change of the current certification process into a mandatory licensure process for the practice of geology in Virginia.  The work reviewed and performed on a daily basis by geologists is many times directly related to the public health and welfare of Virginia citizens.  Work involving drinking water quality, pollution control, protection for vital groundwater and surface water resources effects all Virginia residents and should be controlled to ensure properly qualified professionals are completing these evaluations.
