In 2020, many states and governors dealing with the COVID-related public health crisis created de facto reciprocity for various medical occupations to deal with the surge in demand for licensed professionals. Meanwhile, economic shutdownsboth state-enforced and market-drivenled to large declines in employment among licensed and unlicensed occupations alike. What changes to occupational licensing laws might persist beyond the pandemic, and which new ones are now more viable than before? Stephen Slivinski, senior research fellow at Arizona State University’s Center for the Study of Economic Liberty, will discuss how the past, present, and future of licensing reform and the economic research in the field to date relate in the context of these historic and unprecedented events.
