Before I go into the details, let me speak from 16 years in the Illinois House and 8 more closely observing the process.
Licensing is never, never about anything but conveying special privilege upon some class of people. That was made most obvious by legislation requiring nail technicians and tree trimmers to be licensed. These are businesses that someone with nothing can start.
Now the privilege may be just upon those who provide the training, but, in all licensing bills, following the money is where to start.
He’s right. Illinois doesn’t need this. Call your rep and state sen.
