    It's no joke. That 75 bucks is just the beginning. Next come the new insurance liability bill that will raise the rates as Groundwater Pollution is big business in nj. AND if you are ORGANIC, you will still have the potential for N and P pollution........

    More licenses to come.........

    ProFact..................Revenues for the state and create more jobs.

    And cost others their jobs as folks won't pay 20 bucks per 1,000 or more.

    I think I will start a wildflower pasture planting business............

    Probably not as that appears to be one of those "multi-license" jobs.
    one to buy the wildflowers
    one to plant
    one to fertilize
    one to sell
    and one for the business to say that he does all that.

    Oh yeah, and don't forget about the insurance!

    These are all very real possibilities. There are some states that combine licenses, but believe me everyone would be up in arms if all of a sudden you were required to have a $3000 license and $500 test fee.
