    are you required to be licensed if you are mowing lawns? In CT (at least for now) it only applies to landscaping...mowing no license needed.

    Yea it's a requirement. But it's easier to get the license just for mowing and maintenance. It's kinda pointless since every homeowner can now there lawn if they choose just another way for the county to make money

    Occupational licensure is a slap in the face to me. And it will lead to more risk exposure for those that are licensed. Is insurance required? How many types? Maybe they will require Errors and Omissions for you guys in case you have a straggler or you forgot to blow off the back patio. Lawyers love occupations that require insurance - it makes a poor boy a very likely candidate for a suit.

    Excellent statement,

    Lawyers are also a very popular Lobbying group, and an 'Authoritative Consultant' for regulatory committees...

    Yet people believe it good, becuz it the law... its 'Conspiratorial' to believe that our 'leaders' are giving us bad laws on purpose...
