PG Licensure/Certification

The PG licensure and certification should remain regulated in Virginia.  The licensure is required for submittal of certain documents for the DEQ and I would rather see a PG familiar with the geology of Virginia submit the document than a PE or Environmental Scientist who has not had the experience and education regarding the local geology.  I think getting rid of the licensure requirements will lead to more problems down the road.
