Prosser instructor, area representative opposed the legislation

INDIANAPOLIS —

In the Pence-supported version of the bill, licensing requirements in certain occupations would have been automatically eliminated unless the legislature voted to continue licensing for that occupation. Head said there were lawmakers who were open to the bill but wanted to do away with the automatic elimination of licensing and change the language so that the General Assembly would have to vote to end the license. 

Republican state Rep. Ed Clere of New Albany is one of the legislators who expressed concern about the bill’s potential negative impact. 

“At a time when we’re trying to find ways to help stabilize employment and promote job creation, we shouldn’t be doing anything that could cause additional uncertainty or disruption in any business,” he said.
