Reason: “Unintended Consequence (3/28)

Ohio lawmakers swear they didn’t mean to force people to get a license to sell things on eBay. But that’s just what a recently passed law will do. The law was intended to regulate online auctions. But as written, it requires anyone selling on eBay to use a licensed auctioneer or become an auctioneer. To become an auctioneer one must serve a one-year apprenticeship to an auctioneer and attend classes, among other requirements. The Senate already voted to change the law, but the House hasn’t yet approved the changes.”
