Governor Pence Vetoes Licensing Legislation

Gov Mike Pence
Governor Mike Pence today vetoed two licensing bills because he says they create barriers to the marketplace for Hoosiers and restrict competition. House Enrolled Act 12-42 would have required licenses for diabetes educators, while Senate Enrolled Act 273 would have created a license requirement for anesthesiologist assistants and dietitians, as well as state certification for music therapists. Governor Pence says he is willing to sign license legislation that opens new opportunties for employment or streamlines existing practices and procedures, but that these two did not meet those standards. In the last ten years, there has been a 38-percent increase in the number of Hoosiers holding a professional license, while the state's population has increased just seven-percent over that same time period.
