State Board of Landscape Architects--Application Fees; Regulation No. 16A-615

   On July 30, 1999, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the State Board of Landscape Architects (Board). This rulemaking amends 49 Pa. Code Chapter 15. The proposed regulation was published in the August 14, 1999 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public com- ment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on August 14, 2001.

   This final-form rulemaking adjusts three fees and creates two new fees to cover costs of services provided by the Board. The Board estimates that approximately 75 people will use these services annually. The Board estimates that the total cost of this regulation, for services with increased fees, will be approximately $2,000. The Board is also making language revisions for consistency with the Landscape Architects' Registration Law.

   We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Board (63 P. S. § 905(a)) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

   This regulation is approved.
