House Bill 273 — Occupational licensing, repeal

House Bill 273 — Occupational licensing, repeal

Parrish Miller
March 4, 2021

Bill Description: House Bill 273 would repeal five occupational licenses in July 2022 unless the Legislature chooses to intervene. 

Rating: +1

Does it increase barriers to entry into the market? Examples include occupational licensure, the minimum wage, and restrictions on home businesses. Conversely, does it remove barriers to entry into the market?

House Bill 273 schedules five occupational licensing chapters of Idaho code for deletion. They are: abstracters of title, state athletic commission, certified shorthand reporters board, board of massage therapy, and genetic counselor licensing board. 

By setting these chapters to delete as of July 1, 2022, the Legislature will either have to delay or reverse the deletions during the next Legislative session or allow them to proceed according to schedule. Allowing them to proceed would reduce barriers to entry for those whose professions fall within the provisions of these chapters.
