The Land of 10,000 Lakes Drowns Entrepreneurs in Regulations

Minnesotans who pursue entry-level occupations often drown in a sea of regulations. Even when enforced with civility and the kindest of intentions, too much red tape ensnares too many aspiring entrepreneurs. This study shows how Minnesota’s government-imposed regulatory barriers block the path to the American Dream and how these barriers can be removed.

In an effort to gauge the nature and extent of occupational licensing and its effect on entrepreneurs of modest means, the Institute for Justice Minnesota Chapter has selected 11 occupations and small businesses for regulatory analysis.
