Episode 26: Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing
Feb 11th, 2020 by CLEAR
Skip Braziel, Vice President – State Regulation and Legislation with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and David Cox, CEO of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying introduce listeners to the newly-formed Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing. ARPL is a group of organizations that represent highly-technical professions and the boards that regulate those professions. ARPL hopes to educate policy-makers and the public on concerns related to occupational licensing reform efforts. "It's about our duty to protect the public, and where we see that threatened is where ARPL will become involved." Concerns that Skip and David mention include instances where licensing reform is applied too broadly to all professions, legislation that would allow anyone to perform services as long as the consumer gives consent, and legislation that removes resources from boards.
