Gov. Susana Martinez last week signed an order allowing certain professionals to operate without a state license as long as they have a consumer’s consent – but the administration doesn’t yet know which occupations will be affected.
It appears the order was signed before anyone in that office or the state Department of Regulation and Licensing had compiled a list of professions that will no longer be required to have a license to practice.
Instead, it will be up to the state’s 34 boards and commissions listed in the executive order “to determine if the professions they license are exempt from the consumer choice order,” the Department of Regulation and Licensing said in a statement Friday.
