“Across the country, a new consensus is emerging: Many licensing laws have got to go.”

(Before It's News)

Occupational licencing is a serious drag on the economy and limits opportunity for entrepreneurs. Brain surgeons maybe should have a licence. Hair braiders perhaps not.

(From Forbes)

“Occupational licensing reform helps make state government more effective, efficient, and customer focused,” Gov. Pete Ricketts noted in a statement. “Unnecessary licensing restrictions are a barrier to Nebraskans seeking careers in licensed professions, and especially to those who may be looking for a career change or upward mobility.”

Now more than a dozen licenses are in reformers’ crosshairs. Proposed legislation would lower the number of hours needed to become a licensed barber or cosmetologist from 2,100 hours of training to 1,500. That bill would also halve the required hours for massage therapists, and reduce coursework requirements for nail technicians by at least a third. The one-year experience requirement for title examiners would also be repealed. And separate legislation would allow military spouses with active, out-of-state nursing licenses to apply to practice in Nebraska.
