CPA Experience Requirement – Change Approved Unanimously in the House

By Mike Colgan, PICPA Executive Director and CEO
On Friday, June 29, 2012, the Pennsylvania House voted 199-0 to approve PICPA-supported amendments to the Pennsylvania CPA Statute to change the experience requirement necessary to become a CPA by eliminating the 25 percent attest requirement. The bill now moves on to the Pennsylvania Senate, where we hope to move this issue following their summer recess. PICPA now hopes that this change will be implemented during 2012.
