ASID: An Agency Out of Control

http://cotedetexas.blogspot.com/2008/06/asid-agency-out-of-control.html

See this great blog post about how Kelly Wearstler, Juan Montoya, and other prominent interior designers have been issued Cease and Desist orders in the state of Florida for practicing interior design without a license.

Since Florida is one of three states with a practice act, which is a form of legislation prohibiting the practice of interior design without a license promulgated by ASID, several of the most prominent designers in the US today cannot legally practice there. They are considered unqualified, dontcha know – despite their astronomical success elsewhere.

ASID really has gone off the deep end in promoting and supporting this kind of legislation nationwide. Well-established designers like Wearstler or Montoya may think they are protected, but if these kinds of laws pass elsewhere, we will just see a repeat in every state that has such legislation of precisely this kind of idiocy.
