Local Occupational Licensing Preemption

Local Occupational Licensing Preemption

On many issues, statewide preemption of local policies is common, especially when local governments make it harder for state residents to earn a living. There are currently 25 states that ban local minimum wage increases, and 42 states stop local governments from applying antiquated regulations to force out transportation services such as Uber and Lyft. States have a strong interest in helping job creators and job seekers prosper. After all, if a city’s prohibitions on work trap state residents in welfare, then it is the state budget that ends up paying for the local government’s decision.
