State Licensing Boards

NAR is participating in a coalition that is closely monitoring an evolving discussion at the federal level on state license laws. There are two themes: (1) state license laws regulate too many occupations without a compelling reason for licensing, and (2) concerns that state license boards, especially those that include members of the profession regulated, can engage in anti-competitive and protectionist rulemaking.
