Concord, NH – House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement after Governor Sununu’s budget address where he unveiled a proposal that would significantly reform occupational licensing in New Hampshire.
“I want to thank Governor Sununu for putting this issue front and center as we work on passing a budget for New Hampshire. This transformational plan will have a lasting impact on the lives of every Granite Stater. Overly restrictive occupational licensing puts barriers in the way of those pursuing their dreams. Hours of excessive training, exorbitant educational costs, and expensive government licenses keep people from joining the workforce and changing their lives. This plan will empower Granite Staters to unleash their true potential.”
“Universal license recognition is a game-changer for businesses looking to attract top talent to our state. The notion that someone loses the ability to practice their vocation after crossing state lines is absurd, and it’s time for our laws to reflect that. With this new plan, new residents will no longer face the hurdles that once kept them from getting back to work.”
“Let’s make New Hampshire the best place to live, work, and raise a family by making it the simplest place to do so.”
