Ohio: testimony supporting universal occupational licensing recognition

Regulatory Reform,

The Buckeye Institute has submitted testimony to the Ohio House in support of House Bill 509:

"Some of the bill’s changes with respect to funeral directors and embalmers, for example, should help streamline apprenticeship opportunities for those looking to enter the field. The bill wisely eliminates many temporary licenses; aligns more closely with continuing education requirements for pharmacists; and makes fees, continuing education and licensing renewal for school psychologists more consistent with those in surrounding states. These changes along with universal licensing recognition for out-of-state licenses, will improve Ohio’s overall occupational licensure environment, making the state fairer and more attractive to professionals."
