Contractor Licensing in Saint Joseph
The controversial plan to institute contractor licensing has slowed down in Saint Joseph. There is a very solid article about the dispute here in the News-Press. Unfortunately, while the vote has been delayed as a result of various controversies, it seems unlikely that the proposal will be defeated wholesale. To that end, it’s a good time to remind people of the op-ed I wrote about this exact subject in August, which the News-Press was kind enough to run.
Occupational licensing harms our economy, and does not protect consumers. I hope the Saint Joseph City Council realizes that.
