Threats to Professional Licensure: State List
As originally proposed, the measure required the Commissioner of Consumer Protection to conduct a study regarding occupational licensing. However, the substitute exempts licenses issued pursuant to chapter 393 of the general statutes. Licenses in Chapter 393 of the General Statutes include electricians, plumbers, solar, heating, piping and cooling contractors, and swimming pool builders. Professional engineers were not exempted.
NSPE reached out to the Connecticut Society of Professional Engineers and collaborated to ensure that engineering licensure was protected in Connecticut.
