Authority to license journeymen

I object to this board creating a journeymen license.  License classes should be reserved for persons who have been tested.  Perhaps the board should have establishing a registration program for unlicensed persons to enter the work force.

You provide no substance for the public to rely upon if the new regulations will allow a journeyman to be present with no superior on the job site.  When a complaint is to be filed, this board will attempt to discipline the journeyman and supervisor? Regulation seems counter productive and existing system should have provided enough degree of regulation to protect the public.
