HB 959: Review Licensing to Eliminate Unnecessary Barriers to Work

Primary Sponsor

Summary

Out of 102 recognized professions, Louisiana requires occupational licenses for 76 of them for people to work. Bureaucratic red tape makes it harder and more expensive for my friends, neighbors, and family members to get and keep jobs in Louisiana.

This bill causes state occupational licensing requirements to sunset unless a periodic review of the legislature determines that continuation of the license is needed to meet legitimate health, safety, and welfare objectives. If no such needs are found, the requirements will not be allowed to prevent individuals from working in their chosen profession.
