ASID opposed the legislation because it would have created a board for project permitting made up exclusively of architects. The bill would have given architects assigned to these permitting boards the authority to conduct expedited reviews and to stamp for approval drawings for other architects, circumventing government review of plans and also excluding other design professionals from the review and permitting process.
After considerable opposition, the legislation was amended to include only residential building plans while still excluding from the review board certified interior designers, who design the majority of interior residential spaces and for which architects' licensure is not required.

ASID is committed to ensuring that no legislation providing a peer review board without interior design professionals will become law. For more information on ASID Government and Public Affairs efforts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
