Ga. Lawmakers Address Professional Licensing Issues

A panel of Georgia state lawmakers plans to investigate issues within the Secretary of State’s Division of Professional Licensing Board. The Joint Blue Ribbon Committee Investigating Licensing Issues plans to meet to review and remedy “licensing glitches, costs and the amount of time it takes to process and review applications,” according to the Georgia Recorder on July 3.
