On this episode of "The Front Porch," Scott, Laurie and Rick are joined by Ted Boettner of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy.

They discuss the effect the increasing number of professions requiring licensure or certification has on the state's economy. Are all these licenses really necessary? If not, what's the best way to eliminate the ones we don't need?

Also on the podcast, a discussion of "Sit-gate" in the 2016 gubernatorial race and more.
