From Senator Mike Morrell:

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.

On the bill’s passage, Greenhut said, “Kudos to the senators who, on a bipartisan basis, recognized that overly burdensome licensing rules are keeping some people from earning an honest living. 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. SB 999 helps create opportunities, especially for low-income Californians. This is a sensible reform that will help workers and businesses alike.”
