Occupational licenses are government permission slips to work in certain fields. With around 30% of all Florida jobs requiring some sort of license, the ability to find meaningful and productive work can mean having to spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in classes before even getting a chance to apply for a job. These bills significantly cut down burdensome requirements across a number of different industries such as barbers and nail technicians in addition to completely doing away with restrictions on industries such as hair braiding and nail polishing. HB 1193 was voted up in both legislative chambers and was sent to the Governor to sign.
