SB 999 is sponsored by the R Street Institute, a non-partisan policy think tank based in Washington, D.C. Steven Greenhut, Western region director for the organization penned an op-ed on SB 999 and occupational licensing that can be read here.

“Kudos to the senators who, on a bipartisan basis, recognized that overly burdensome licensing rules are keeping some people from earning an honest living,” Greenhut said. “People who want to shampoo and curl hair shouldn’t have to spend $7,500 to $19,000 on ten months of classwork to do what most of us do on a daily basis.”
