State Rep. Heath Clark and his co-signers have introduced HB 147 which is being pushed by a lobbying group in Washington D.C. called R Street Institute. (InsiderAdvantage Feb. 8 oped by Marc Hyden.) The bill is an effort at reciprocity with other states— all other states— in issuing professional licenses.
Example: If California has issued a professional license to a resident for “occupation X” and that person relocates to Georgia, the idea is to issue a license for the same job here without most of the current processing. It is sold as “cutting red tape for business…” But as with almost all bills, problems can arise.
