Threats to Professional Licensure: State List
The “Right to Earn a Living Act” prohibits state agencies from imposing a personal qualification requirement in order to engage in a profession or occupation unless the agency can show that the requirement is demonstrably necessary and narrowly tailored to address a specific, legitimate public health, safety, or welfare objective.
On or before July 1, 2019, every agency is required to review occupational regulations and determine whether the regulation should be repealed or amended based on specific requirements. An individual may also file a petition with an agency requesting that an occupational regulation be repealed or amended.
NSPE alerted NSPE-CO to the legislation and will continue to collaborate to oppose the measure.
