Licensing… Resistance is futile, ASHI & the EBPHI will outspend you anti-licensing guys 100 -to- 1. Hell, who knows Nick is probably silently backing nation wide licensing to sell more education too. You anti-licensing guys are like Atheists at a church covered-dish dinner, outnumbered & more pitied than feared.
That is the main reason A$HI is in such bad financial shape. They are more concerned about getting their old out of dated inspectors positions as teachers or on licensing boards in these newly licensed states then to care what it is doing to its members.
…and we are growing in number and volume. Each of the last two years, the MAR lobbiest was promising the members that “this is the year”. In an interview that he and I recently shared, he was not so sure and unwilling to predict the outcome.
If we were better organized, we would be approaching the state governors facing budget crises due to decreased tax revenues this year with the options of saving wasted state dollars by rescinding these unnecessary and ineffective licensing laws.
