2-8-401. Purpose. It is the intent of the legislature to:
(1) exercise the police power of the state through the establishment of licensing boards only when regulation of a profession or occupation benefits the public health, safety, welfare, or common good of the state's residents and that benefit outweighs the potential increased cost to the public and limitation on competition;
(2) recognize those professions or occupations that require specialized skill or training; and
(3) provide the public with a means to determine whether practitioners have met competency standards and to complain if the competency is suspect.
