David Lancaster

At its February 25 meeting, the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners (TBAE) approved publishing proposed rule changes regarding reciprocal licensing in the Texas Register. The agency will request public comment within the required 30-day period following publication, which is expected in the March 18 Register.

The issue will also include the formal announcement of rules approved at the February meeting. These recently approved rules deal with registration of military service members, veterans and spouses; eligibility to petition for rulemaking; and reference cleanup related to elimination of the $200 annual license tax, among others.

Members are encouraged to visit TBAE’s website frequently. It is a valuable resource including but not limited to proposed rule-changes, recent meetings or disciplinary actions.  Check it out at
