Occupational reform catches on in Pennsylvania:
Being a barber, an auctioneer, or even a “campground membership salesperson” in Pennsylvania requires a state-issued license.
That should change, says Gov. Tom Wolf.
Wolf, a Democrat, called Thursday for the state legislature to abolish 13 occupational and professional licenses, following the completion of a year-long review of Pennsylvania’s licensing laws. In place of some of those licenses, the Wolf administration says workers could be required to register with state boards. For others, such as hair-braiders, the administration has recommended eliminating the state’s role entirely.
Is Rhode Island going to take the lead on economic freedom for its residents or be among the last states holding on to insider deals? Sadly, that isn’t difficult to predict… unless voters start surprising us.
