Americans for Prosperity Applauds Senate Passage of Bill to Prohibit Burdensome Occupational Licensing Requirements

Apr 13, 2023 by AFP

COLUMBIA, SC — Americans for Prosperity – South Carolina (AFP-SC) today applauded the unanimous Senate passage of HB 3605, a bill to prohibit the state from denying an occupational license based solely or in part on a prior criminal conviction.

AFP-SC State Director Candace Carroll released the following statement:

“Occupational licensing requirements stand in the way of South Carolinians starting a career, most especially those who have left the criminal justice system. I am grateful to see the Senate move to pass these crucial reforms, and I’m optimistic Governor McMaster will sign a final bill that gives those looking to start over a fair shot at success.”

HB 3605 now goes back to the House for concurrence before going to the Governor’s desk.
