State Board Report

April 2013

Looking for legislation of interest to your State Board of Accountancy? Take a look at NASBA’s Legislative Tracking System, as customized by NASBA Director of Legislative Affairs John Johnson. “The system NASBA is using searches for accountant-specific bills that fit at least one of seven profiles,” said Mr. Johnson, who introduced the system during the executive directors’ conference. “The profiles are: Boards of Accountancy-related legislation; accounting standards; education/ethics/CPE/exam; military/spouse of military licensure; SOX cascade; tax preparers; or other activity affecting the profession.”

Mr. Johnson told the executive directors: “If there is a bill that is important to you, let me know and I will set up an alert so the system will automatically e-mail you the status of that bill anytime it changes.” He added, “And If I come across things that would jeopardize the regulation of the profession, I will pick up the phone and notify you.”

Through the NASBA Web page, it is possible to see legislative reports by state, alphabetically, or by each of the seven profiles. The current status of the legislation can be learned through the links the system provides. Questions about the legislative tracking system should be directed to Mr. Johnson at
