Ohio Considering Occupational Licensing Reform Bill that Eliminates Specialty Contractor License Bonds 

Ohio HB 583 is an occupational licensing reform measure that would address municipal licensing requirements in addition to state licensing requirements. The bill would eliminate the authorization for municipalities to require specialty contractors, who must be licensed at the state level, to register with the municipality and post a bond. A bond is not required in connection with a state license for contractors. The bill also would prohibit political subdivisions from requiring licenses for any profession that already is required to obtain a license under state law. The bill also would address other occupational licensing issues such as disqualification from obtaining a license for having a criminal record, nonspecific moral character requirements, and licensing fees.
