Occupational licenses are too often merely protectionism set up by the state to artificially restrict supply and give boons to special interests at the expense of the people of Massachusetts.
We call for:
- Full reciprocation of licenses granted in other states and commonwealths;
- The elimination of licensing requirements unrelated to health or safety;
- The streamlining and expediting of any health or safety related licensing process that may remain, so as to achieve its desired aim with the absolute minimum possible burden on applicants;
- Elimination of restrictions on cash-based / non-insurance based practice, to allow Massachusetts to procure care without being forced into the insurance bureaucracy.
