(USA) Call to Action: The Laws around PE Designation For EEs needs to Change

The field of Electrical Engineering has outpaced the system by which people are granted their Professional Engineering license.

1) The type of building power system engineering that the PE stamp is used for is now a minority of actual engineers. Because of how a PE status is achieved (apprenticeship), all semiconductor, communication, microelectronic, etc. engineers do not have reasonable methods to gain a license that would allow themselves to identify themselves as electrical engineers or run a small consultancy.

2) Because American professionals are prevented from advertising their services as freelancers, foreign businesses are given an unfair advantage, in fact creating an uneven playing field for our own.

The laws need to change!
