Mass. Gov.: Freeze Unemployment Insurance Rates

"This is very important to small businesses across the commonwealth," Hurst said. "We want to make sure that for small businesses, we can eliminate the confusion factor, duplicative type of requirements, and make sure the red tape is out of the way."

Those changes would consolidate the licensing of nearly 84,000 barbers, cosmetologists and electrologists under a single registration board. The changes are aimed at making it easier for professionals in these fields to obtain and renew their licenses.
