HEA 1220 Professional Investigation Funds

This bill establishes that architects, landscapers, land surveyors and professional engineers must pay a fee at the time of issuance or renewal of licenses into an investigative fund. In effect, law abiding business people are being forced to subsidize investigations in their own industry. Why not put costs of investigation onto those that actually commit the crime rather than arbitrarily making the cost of entry higher for honest, young professionals while raising the cost of services to consumers? Making innocent people pay for the crimes of the guilty is not a good way to promote an industry, to ensure accountability nor to spur economic growth in that area.
