Be sure to check out David Stokes' interview in the Riverfront Times on licensing of professionals. I find it very informative and interesting. David has long been a proponent for deregulation of the licensing process for many occupations, because it is costly and prevents competition. He laid out the primary aspects of his position in his Dec. 4 case study for the Show-Me Institute, and there advocated a procedural review on the subject. Check it out.
