Join us for a beer & a conversation about licensing on April 11


Granite Staters entering the job market often face government-imposed barriers to entry. State-required licenses can come with onerous fees, arduous training requirements and a lack of reciprocity for individuals already licensed by another state in their field of practice.

Gov. Chris Sununu has proposed a major overhaul of New Hampshire’s occupational licensing bureaucracy. The governor’s proposal would establish universal license reciprocity, streamline the license approval process, consolidate licensing boards and eliminate 11 of them, and eliminate 23 permanent and 11 temporary licenses.

How would changing the state’s licensing bureaucracy and eliminating nearly two dozen licenses affect New Hampshire consumers?

Join us at Stark Brewing in Manchester on Tuesday, April 11, for a drink and a discussion to learn how unnecessary licensing regulations make it harder for Granite Staters to achieve the American Dream and how New Hampshire can work to break down these barriers.

Panelists are:

Drew Cline, Josiah Barlett Center for Public Policy

Ross Connolly, Americans for Prosperity

Jessica Poitras, Institute for Justice


Time & Location: 6-8 pm, Stark Brewery, Manchester, N.H.
