  H.B. No. 3114
  relating to continuing professional education requirements for
  land surveyors.
         SECTION 1.  Section 1071.305(a), Occupations Code, is
  amended to read as follows:
         (a)  As a condition for renewal of a certificate of
  registration, the board shall require a registered professional
  land surveyor to successfully complete continuing professional
  education courses as prescribed by board rule.  The board's rules
  must provide that the continuing professional education
  requirement may be met by completing annually not more than 16 
  [eight] hours[, a calendar day,] of professional development
  courses or programs.
         SECTION 2.  (a)  The change in law made by this Act to
  Section 1071.305, Occupations Code, applies only to a certificate
  of registration under Chapter 1071, Occupations Code, that expires
  on or after January 1, 2010.  A certificate of registration that
  expires before January 1, 2010, is covered by the law in effect
  immediately before the effective date of this Act, and the former
  law is continued in effect for that purpose.
         (b)  The Texas Board of Professional Land Surveying shall
  adopt rules under Section 1071.305, Occupations Code, as amended by
