Richard J.A. Temple, PE
2015 FICE President
May 2015 FICE Update
The Florida Legislative session came to an end earlier this month as the House of Representatives abruptly adjourned three days early. Most of the bills affecting the engineering profession are now stalled until the next session. However, we must continue our support for these initiatives in the coming months. We should continue to support FICE's ACEC Florida PAC, the Consulting Engineers Legislative Council (CELC) and the Florida Engineers PAC. They all have a tremendous impact on protecting the interests of our engineering profession.
Planning for next year is already underway. FICE membership is steadily increasing. FICE committees all remain very active, many with new members and new leadership bringing renewed energy and ideas to the organization. Our members are eager to get involved and make a difference. Please encourage your staff to get involved. They will find it very rewarding.

ACEC/PAC is the primary weapon in our industry's political arsenal to help elect candidates to office who support pro-business, pro-engineering positions. ACEC/PAC is bipartisan and operates out in the open in full compliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act and applicable state laws. Supporting political programs like ACEC/PAC is the best thing we can do to make sure engineering firms have a voice at the table when key decisions are made affecting our future.
