2013 House Bill 4641: Prohibit occupational licensure exceeding public health and safety interest
  1. Introduced by Rep. Tom McMillin (R) on April 30, 2013, to prohibit the state or local governments from imposing a form of occupational licensure, registration, certification, bond-posting, inspection mandate or other restriction on an individual seeking to perform a lawful occupation, if it is more restrictive than required for public health and safety. Instead, governments would be allowed only to impose the “least restrictive” burden required for public health and safety. Individuals would have a right to sue if an occupational regulation excessively burdens their right to earn a living in a lawful occupation.
    • Referred to the House Regulatory Reform Committee on April 30, 2013.
