Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Right to Earn a Living Act. Defines "entry regulations", "public service restrictions", and other terms. Provides that all entry regulations with respect to businesses and professions and all public service restrictions shall be limited to those demonstrably necessary and carefully tailored to fulfill legitimate public health, safety, or welfare objectives. Provides that within one year after the effective date of the Act, all agencies shall conduct a comprehensive review of all entry regulations within their jurisdictions, and for each such entry regulation it shall: (i) articulate with specificity the public health, safety, or welfare objective or objectives served by the regulation; and (ii) articulate the reason or reasons why the regulation is necessary to serve the specified objective or objectives. Provides that any person may petition any agency to repeal or modify any entry regulation into a business or profession within its jurisdiction. Requires the agency, within 90 days after a petition has been filed, to either repeal the entry regulation, modify the regulation to achieve standards specified under the Act, or state the basis on which it concludes the regulation conforms with those standards. Contains provisions concerning enforcement and the preemption of local laws inconsistent with the provisions of the Act.
