Unfortunately some of the strongest opposition to dropping some of these business strangling fees and such are those that have had to pay in the past. So by God in their mind everybody should have to pay. In Louisiana you need a state license and take a state test etc. to become a florist. The strongest opposition to dropping these requirements to become a florist are the florists who have already had to pay through the nose to become a florist. Which is kind of understandable, but that doesn’t make it right. They also don’t want to have to compete with other florists who unlike them didn’t have to pay the license/test fees, so it’s fine by them to keep it hard for others to become florists.
