Ms. Morrow's testimony to Connecticut Legislature opposing reinstating of interior design licensing


Ms. Morrow testified in opposition to reinstating interior design regulation in Connecticut after Judge Mark Kravitz ruled the previous regulation UNCONSTITUTIONAL.  In point # 4, Ms. Morrow boldly states that portraying grandfathered titled interior designers as possessing the same qualifications as newly-licensed ID professionals is "consumer fraud,"  thus inferring the Louisiana ID Board is perpetrating a "consumer fraud."
