Alabama to allow Surveying by Scrubs in Rural Areas

Now this is absolutely nuts,

I see licensed, experienced surveyors make errors every day (not to bash the profession, I see an enormous amount of survey data) and the fallout from such mistakes can be dire. Now Alabama feels fit to introduce a bill to allow un-licensed surveyors to practice in rurals parts of the state. I don’t understand the logic here; if this passes they will be cleaning up this mess for years. The folks over at the Surveying, Mapping and GIS blog have an exhaustive series of posts on why this is a really bad idea.
