Senator AJ Griffin has submitted language to modify the trespass statute.  I will update this page as soon as it gets a Bill No attached to it. Representative Jason Murphey has agreed be the House sponsor.

Agreed, Kevin. That is why this modification to the current statute needs to be made. So we as Surveyors can do our jobs as defined by the minimum standards

Many times adjoining landowners or tenants do not know exactly where their boundaries are located. How can I mark the boundary lines or corners if the neighbor claims trespass? In other instances there can be a problem accessing a location without crossing a neighbor's property. The right of a surveyor to trespass on the job should be kept.

I retract my previous comment. I did not see section (1835 A) language prior to reading section (1835.2 A) Therefore upon re-consideration, I agree that section (1835.2 A) should be revised as proposed to insure that we Surveyors have the continued right of trespass in the performance of our services. AND I guess that we can keep Senator Griffin in Office after all...lol

Winston, How do you figure? This proposal was sponsored by OSLS. It is intended to FIX the problem of Land Surveyors being required to leave if asked to.

This proposed Legislation STINKS ! It would in effect tie Land Surveyors hands and feet from reaching the monuments necessary to perform our Surveying duties. Senator Griffin needs to be run out of office.
