UPDATE JUNE 17, 2012- THE NEW YORK TIMES SLAMS REGULATION WITH THE SAME IJ CHART NOTED BELOW http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/17/magazine/so-you-think-you-can-be-a-hair-braider.html?pagewanted=all
Looks like the Institute for Justice is at it again. Interior Design..or what they consider “Interior Design” is supposedly the most restrictive or over regulated occupation in the U.S.. Or another way to look at it is Interior Design is the occupation that is most difficult to become regulated or licensed.
So what’s the problem again?
Of course in the eyes and minds of the IJ anybody should be able to call themselves an interior designer and anybody with a pulse should be able to practice “interior design”. All the more reason for ASID/IIDA to rally around R.I.D.’s and the process to legislate “Registered Interior Designers”.
Let the unregistered interior designers be – if you love somebody set them free.
