License To Play (Politics)

Licensing is an under-examined area of government. Dick Carpenter puts the practice under a microscope in his new book "Bottleneckers: Gaming the Government for Power and Private Profit." What are some examples of how a licensing requirement bottlenecks government? Why would an industry seek a licensing mandate? Has Governor Rauner done anything to eliminate unnecessary licenses? Can we eliminate licensing as a practice and what would be the impact? Carpenter gives Dan and Amy all the details.
