Model Legislation: The Occupational Licensing Consumer Choice Act

Summary

The Occupational Licensing Consumer Choice Act (“the Act”) is model legislation that provides consumers with the right to choose a worker who best serves their needs irrespective of whether that person holds an occupational license from the state of [STATE]. It provides that business owners, entrepreneurs, and workers in professions otherwise licensed by the state of [STATE] may operate without an occupational license if they disclose that fact to prospective consumers. Workers and entrepreneurs subject to regulatory enforcement may assert such disclosure as a defense to action related to enforcement of occupational
licensing laws and regulations.
