NYSAPLS has made advocacy and government relations one of its highest priorities. We believe there is a great need to increase the visibility of the land surveying community in the public policy process.

Through the combined efforts of the NYSAPLS lobbyist and its active Legislative/Executive Committee, your voice is well represented on all levels of state government.  Our legislative agenda includes issues such as expanded scope of practice and redefining the definition of surveying in New York.
