I support the proposal to require a supervisee working toward becoming a licensed clinical social worker to obtain licensure as a licensed master's social worker while obtaining required experience under supervision.  

When dealing with mental health and well-being of the public, I believe it is of the upmost importance for social worker professionals to have licensure to practice as they interact with their clients.
