Episode 54: Sunrise Review and Right-sizing Occupational Regulation
Jun 14th, 2022 by CLEAR
A new research report released by the Institute for Justice analyzes 30 years worth of sunrise reviews and draw lessons for licensing policy. Co-authors Lisa Knepper and Kathy Sanchez define sunrise reviews as studies examining whether proposed occupational licenses and other regulations are really a good idea and genuinely in the public's interest, not just the occupation's interest. They discuss some of the common features of sunrise laws and programs across states and share what the research shows about how licensing proposals stand up to the scrutiny of sunrise. Elizabeth Carter, who conducted sunrise reviews for the Virginia Board of Health Professions, shares their rigorous process for sunrise reviews, including their seven criteria and the consistency of their process, which leads to an empirically-based rationale for a recommendation.
