From The Michigan Daily:

This is a bipartisan issue and people all over the political spectrum are working to make sure this kind of reform continues to pick up movement. Think tanks as diverse as the R Street Institute and the Center for American Progress both blast much of occupational licensing done today because many people see the problems with it. Those on the right can support reform because it helps get government out of the private sector, and those on the left can support reform because it helps disadvantaged members of society.
