An unhealthy shortage of good economics

The House of Representatives just passed a bill that would remove the cap on the number of beauty school licenses issued in the state. It is amazing that we can do that and risk a proliferation of hair cutters all over Kentucky, but we can't also allow an expansion of medical services by repealing Certificate of Need.

I guess they are saying to enjoy your cheaper haircuts in Kentucky, but don't get sick.
