In the month of July, Congress was almost completely focused on passing some sort of repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, a.k.a. "Obamacare"). As such, very few other matters were considered in the legislature, and we are all surely familiar with the end result (at least, for the time being) of the ACA repeal vote.
During this time, Lobbyit focused on legislation which would provide states anti-trust protection for occupational licensing requirements, provided they instituted reforms to ensure such requirements were not anti competitive. Lobbyit met with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the office of Senator Mike Lee, and with the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss this issue.
