Government Relations|

At the direction of the AIA CA Board of Directors, we are seeking to have three bills introduced in the Legislature before the February 18 bill introduction deadline.  The proposed bills are:

Copyright Protection

To prohibit local government planning departments from sharing the design plans of proposed projects in a way that allows the public to copy those plans without the knowledge and permission of the architect.

Department of Industrial Relations Registration

To require architects to register with the Department of Industrial Relations as a public works contractor ($400 annual registration fee) only if the services provided by the architect include services that require the payment of a prevailing wage.  Currently, many government entities are requiring architects to register in order to compete for a public works project, even it the services provided by the architect will not include work that requires a prevailing wage.

Collection of Demographic Information

To allow the CA Architects Board to collect demographic information (race/ethnicity and gender) of licensed architects.  This information will help inform programs seeking to create opportunities for a more diverse profession.
