In February of 2018, Gov. Asa Hutchinson appointed a working group to study the state’s occupational licensing requirements with a goal of identifying any regulations that may be an unnecessary barrier to those who want to enter a trade. Over the last year, the Red Tape Reduction Working Group has examined occupations and trades that require a license and identified the occupations the state could eliminate from licensing requirements without compromising the safety of consumers.

Rep. Bruce Cozart, co-chair of the group, will review and discuss the group's findings and recommendations, and the resulting legislation.

ASAE's policy is that anyone that RSVPs and does not attend the meeting will be billed.

Rep. Bruce Cozart, of Hot Springs, is serving his fourth term in the Arkansas House of Representatives. He represents District 24, which includes a portion of Garland County.

For the 92nd General Assembly, Rep. Cozart serves as chairperson of the House Education Committee.
