I can understand someone that has been in the business for awhile as an
employee being grandfathered in. But to allow anyone without experience
at all to go ahead and BUY a license defeats the purpose.

Florida is way different:

1. You must be a florida resident for at least 3 years.
2. You must show prior experience for a minimum of 5 years.
3. You must have an active corporation on file with the state.
4. You must show proof of general liability insurance, workman's comp,
vehicle insurance, and a valid tax id & resale number on file prior to
being accepted to taking the exams.
5. Upon license renewal, you must take state required continuing
education courses, and provide updated proof of insurance etc.

This has just about eliminated all the fly-by-nighters here.
