More light on the showdown in Texas

An update, via IALD, on the Texas brouhaha over licensing legislation that would outlaw lighting design:

Texas State Senator Kip Averitt's office has called to inform IALD that the "lighting designer" language in Texas House Bill 2649 (THB2649) will be withdrawn and replaced with language requesting a study by the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation of the feasibility of licensing in the industry.  

There are various technical steps to be completed in the next few days as the Texas legislative session reaches its statutory end-of-life on 31 May, but the bottom line is that lighting designers will be able to continue to practice in Texas!
