Governor Wolf Proposes Job Licensing Reform to Cut Red Tape, Strengthen Workforce

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter June 14, 2018 Economy,  Efficiency,  Government Reform,  Government That Works,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Plains Township, PA – Building on his commitment to make state government more responsive to Pennsylvania’s growing economy, Governor Tom Wolf is calling for reforms to several job licensing boards and the licensing requirements to remove barriers to employment so skilled workers can enter the careers of their choice, strengthen the workforce, and grow our economy.“Pennsylvania must be a place where people can put their skills, experience and education to work,” said Governor Wolf. “Requiring a government license to work in certain jobs helps to keep all of us safe, but those requirements should be fair.“We must cut the red tape, reduce the bureaucracy and ensure overly burdensome rules and fees do not block hardworking people – especially our military spouses – from getting a good job, supporting their families and growing our economy.”Nationwide, the share of workers needing a license has grown five-fold since the early 1950s, with most of the increase occurring as states require more professions to be licensed. Today, one in five Pennsylvania workers needs a government license to do their job, representing more than one million workers.Over-licensing makes it harder for skilled workers to get into a profession, reducing their career opportunities and lowering their pay, while increasing costs to consumers. After decades of expanding licensing, there is a national awareness of the need to modernize job licensing to reduce restrictions while protecting consumers and benefiting workers.Last year, Governor Wolf signed an Executive Order directing the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs within the Department of State to conduct a review of job licensing to compare Pennsylvania with our regional states. The governor’s proposals are the result of the final report.Eliminate 13 Job LicensesThe governor called on the General Assembly to repeal 13 job licenses and replace them with less restrictive requirements that protect the public for the following:Auctioneers, only require registration and bonding.Barbers, only require certification from a licensed barber school, passage of examination, minimum hours of training, and registration with the State Board of Barber Examiners.Cemetery Broker/Cemetery Salesperson, only require passage of relevant examination, 60 hours of instruction and registration.Campground Membership Salesperson, only require registration with the State Real Estate Commission.Natural Hair Braiding License, eliminate this license.Orthotic fitter/Orthotist/Pedorthist/Prosthetist, only require credentialing, passage of an education program, training, and minimum hours of training.Practitioner of Oriental Medicine, maintain existing, but separate acupuncturist licensing requirement to protect public health and safety.Rental Listing Referral Agent, only require registration with the State Real Estate Commission.Vehicle Factory Representative, only require registration with the State Board of Vehicle Manufacturers, Dealers, and Salespersons.Ease Relocation for Military SpousesLicensing requirements can make it harder for workers to move across state lines, particularly for military spouses who have burdens transferring their license to Pennsylvania. The governor will work with the General Assembly to streamline the process for military spouses and pass legislation allowing licensing boards to seek reciprocity agreements with other states and grant licensure through endorsement.“Military spouses serve our country with their selfless support of their loved ones in uniform, and they face numerous challenges along the way,” said Col. Edwards S. Little, Jr., representing the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. “In Pennsylvania, one of those challenges is license portability, making it difficult for many military spouses to find employment. That is why the governor’s initiative to break down employment barriers by supporting the Military Spouse License Portability Act in our commonwealth is so important.”Balance Education and Training RequirementsWhile continuing education has benefits to workers and consumers, over-regulating through unnecessary training can create undue burdens and costs. The governor is directing each licensing board to amend its continuing education regulations to levels established in state law. Additionally, the governor will work to enact legislation reducing training requirements for cosmetologists from 1,250 to 1,000 as recommended by the Future of the Beauty Industry Coalition, the national organization representing students, licensed stylists, salon owners, manufacturers, distributors, and cosmetology schools.Provide Second Chance ReformTo level the playing field compared to our regional states, the governor is calling for a repeal of the automatic 10-year ban on licensing for anyone convicted of a drug felony. Instead, the 13 boards with the statutory ban could consider criminal history, but it would not be conclusive of a person’s fitness for a job. Removing this barrier encourages people to work, which reduces crime and recidivism, making our communities safer.Speed Up Occupational License ProcessThe Governor’s Office of Performance Through Excellence will review the licensing applications process to reduce reviews to no more than 10 days, absent extenuating circumstances.center_img Governor Wolf Proposes Job Licensing Reform to Cut Red Tape, Strengthen Workforcelast_img read more

Soldado aiming for better

first_img Press Association Roberto Soldado admits his goal return for Tottenham is much less than he would have hoped for following his big-money move from Valencia – but he is confident of better times to come. Tottenham splashed out a then club-record fee of around £26million to bring Soldado to England this summer but the Spain international has struggled to justify that outlay so far. He has struck six goals in all competitions, but half of those have come from the penalty spot, and the 28-year-old concedes he expected to do better. center_img Asked if he had found the back of the net as often as he would have liked, Soldado said in the Daily Telegraph: “No. Definitely not. Much less. A lot of my goals have come from the penalty spot.” Soldado, who was a prolific scorer in Spain for Valencia and Getafe prior to his switch to the Barclays Premier League, believes Spurs fans will see more from him in the future, though. “I want to score more goals than I am doing at the moment. That is why they signed me. I have been doing it all my career,” he said. “I haven’t done so far here, but I am convinced I will get there.” Tottenham travel to Fulham on Wednesday night as they look for a first Barclays Premier League win in five matches. Sunday’s 2-2 home draw with Manchester United left Andre Villas-Boas’s side in ninth place in the table. last_img read more

Newcastle hoping to tie up deal for Tottenham winger Andros Townsend

first_imgNewcastle hope to push home their interest in Tottenham winger Andros Townsend this week as head coach Steve McClaren looks to strengthen his attacking options. Press Association The Magpies have opened talks over the England international and are hopeful of landing him either on a permanent deal, or on a loan basis with an option to buy in the summer. Press Association Sport understands the 24-year-old, who has also been linked with Watford and West Brom in recent weeks, has indicated a willingness to make the move to Tyneside. center_img However, no deal has yet been agreed and Spurs are understood to be holding out for their full valuation of a player who has not featured in the first team at White Hart Lane since the 2-1 Europa League defeat by Anderlecht on October 22 after reportedly falling out with a member of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s staff. Both clubs are renowned for driving a hard bargain and it remains to be seen whether or not they can find common ground with McClaren keen to have Townsend at his disposal as soon as possible, and ideally before Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Watford. Newcastle dragged themselves out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 home victory over West Ham on Saturday. New arrivals Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet were handed debuts in the match with the former Swansea man in particular making a major impact. However, McClaren is keen to add both a striker and a winger to his squad. In addition to Townsend, the Newcastle boss is continuing his search for a specialist frontman to take the pressure off summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic, who once again passed up a series of chances at the weekend. Newcastle began the month with a long list of targets but Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette is seemingly beyond their reach, Chelsea’s Loic Remy is apparently unavailable, West Ham’s Andy Carroll and Wolfsburg’s Bas Dost are both injured and Charlie Austin has made a surprise switch to Southampton. West Brom’s Saido Berahino remains in their sights, although there will be significant competition for his signature and the Magpies need to have alternatives in mind. last_img read more

WSOC : Orange struggles to maintain intensity in weekend games

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ It was a tale of two matches this weekend for Syracuse.In Thursday’s game, all it took was a hard slide tackle from Syracuse defender Skylar Sabbag to send then-No. 12 Boston College a message: Take SU women’s soccer seriously.Fast forward three days: Syracuse faced Rhode Island, a team that managed only three wins in its previous season. But instead of riding the wave of momentum after a stellar effort against BC, Syracuse came out flat and fell to a lesser opponent 2-1.‘Every player was up for (the BC game), and then we became Rhode Island’s ‘BC,” said SU head coach Phil Wheddon.SU’s uneven performance is one the Orange (1-2-1, 0-0 Big East) hopes to avoid the rest of the season, as it searches for consistency in conference play. Syracuse proved it could stick with one of the premier programs in the country in Boston College, but couldn’t muster up that same fighting mentality against a beatable Rhode Island team. And with Big East opponents coming up in a little more than a week, Syracuse realizes now it has to have the same intense approach night in and night out.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore Thursday’s contest, the Eagles were snapping off pictures of themselves rather than warming up. Wheddon made sure to point out that disrespect right away, and it worked like a charm. To the Orange that was a slap in the face, adding even more motivation to bring it against a ranked opponent.The result was Syracuse playing to a 0-0 tie on the road against a top-10 team. It was the best Wheddon has ever seen his team play.‘It obviously got us all fired up and ready to go, so we definitely proved them wrong,’ senior defender Casey Ramirez said. ‘They felt a little stupid afterward I’m sure.’And with that gutty performance, Wheddon’s team went from underdog to favorite in the course of a single weekend.Underestimating the Rams on Sunday was something that Wheddon worried about going into the game and for good reason. Rather than sticking to the game plan that earned a well-fought tie against the Eagles, Wheddon felt the Orange veered away from that.‘There was a little bit of a letdown, not an awful lot, but I think we just expected to win,’ he said.He said his team tried to pull off some things against Rhode Island that it didn’t against BC, with some fancier play rather than keeping things simple like passing from point A to point B.Jenna Rickan said that finding a way to replicate that effort against Boston College was on the team’s mind for the Rhode Island game, but it just didn’t happen.Sophomore defender Cecilia Borgstrom, the only Orange player to net a goal on the weekend, said the message Wheddon voiced after that loss to Rhode Island was to treat every team the same way. No more or less.‘Don’t think of what they’re called,’ Borgstrom said Wheddon told the team. ‘Just play the game.’Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. While Syracuse was on its toes against BC, a couple of defensive lapses cost the Orange two goals against the Rams. Rhode Island also put all six of its shots on net. Against BC, Syracuse forced the Eagles to take multiple shots from 30 yards out.‘That’s a problem. We have to be consistent, and we’re working on it,’ Borgstrom said.One positive SU can pull from this weekend, though, is how much and how quickly the tides can turn.‘I definitely think it was a wake-up call for all of us,’ said Ramirez.So for Syracuse, the goal the rest of the season is to bring the same hungry attitude into every game. Unless, that is, the opposing team provokes them by taking pictures before a match.‘I think just coming back and seeing that not to take any game for granted really taught us a good, hard, but good lesson,’ Rickan said. ‘Obviously, you want to do well every weekend, but at least it’s now, in the beginning, so we can learn from it.’dgproppe@syr.educenter_img Published on September 6, 2011 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more
