Wisconsinites support commonsense occupational licensing reforms that increase opportunities for work while protecting the safety of the public.


of voters say

occupational licensing laws should be more worker-friendly—and are less likely to support those laws when they require workers with low-risk jobs to pay-to-play.

Voters support measures that check bureaucratic power and see value in regulators reporting to higher levels of government like the governor’s office and leaders in the legislature (58%). And they are even more supportive of transparency measures that allow the public to see exactly what issues affect licensing determinations (71%).
