In favor

I am in favor of amending the current regulations preventing residents from accepting direct payment from clients. 

Many states already allow provisionally licensed clinicians this role and has not created any harm to the system of obtaining complete licensure. In fact it increases clinicians drive and ability to gain more clients. 

This is also a positive acknowledgement of the current economic needs of residents. Times have changes and clinicians are unable to make ends meet by such restrictions.
