BI Services Case Manager Staff Qualification, knowledge and skills

As mentioned earlier, the Bachelor degree should be replaced by several years of experience. 

Directly from the Governor of VA  - immediate Release on May 30th 2023:

RICHMOND, VA - Governor Glenn Youngkin announced today a landmark change in how state agencies will recruit and compete for talent by eliminating degree requirements, preferences or both for almost 90% of state classified positions. The new Commonwealth hiring practices will expand opportunities for Virginians and give equal consideration to all qualified job applicants. See here

The question is why then a BI Case Manger needs a degree when it can be replaced with valuable years of experience, i.e. why are they held to different standards than state employees?
