It is important that federal, state and local government agencies recognize
the Texas Geoscience Practice Act, the requirement of licensure
as a Professional Geoscientist, and the scope of work authorized by
the Texas Geoscience Practice Act. TBPG’s Appointed Board has noted
that sometimes government agency rules do not take P.G. licensure into
account when they propose new or modify existing rules related to
the public practice of geoscience in Texas.
If you become aware of instances in which P.G. licensure has not been
considered in a proposed rule affecting the public practice of
geoscience in Texas,TBPG would like for you to let us know.
Please use the following link to send us information
about the proposed rule: E-mail TBPG
If possible, please include a link to the proposed rule
and include your contact information. Thank you!
What does a P.G. do? Do you have a 3 to 5 minute informational video
that shows what you do as a P.G.? Please send it to us!
Video submissions may be sent to us at: E-mail
Videos submitted to TBPG may be used for informational purposes.
