Maybe a hypothetical example would be in order. Suppose that you wanted to start a company to manufacture oh... let's say.., smudge sticks made of locally grown sage. You start small, harvesting local white sage that grows abundantly in Julian. You wrap it in your home and sell it to friends and family or display it on an electrical transformer on Main Street with an honor system pay box next to the sticks. Well wonder upon wonder the cash-box gets filled on the weekends making you a tidy little profit considering that your investment in raw material is virtually nothing and you don't have a job anyway So tying sage smudge sticks is a great way to spend time and make a little cash as well. Out of nowhere, Holly Golightly appears on the Today show plugging the wondrous benefits of "smudging" not to mention her new book "Smudging with Sage" Well what do you do being the go-getting business man/woman that you are? You start picking and tying like mad, move your products into the local stores, establish an Internet presence, start selling on-line and start making a small killing. Like other great American businesses that started out of garages you decide to go legit. After all, businesses and Internet purchasers are not going to give you cash. You file a fictitious business name statement, start a bank account, take out a business license, get a federal tax ID number, take out a workman's comp policy because for sure, the way business is going you'll have to hire employees and for God's sake if one of them falls off the side of a hill harvesting product, you want to be covered. Everything is going great but there is one little problem about getting that business license. Your state has a requirement that all sellers of sage smudge sticks must acquire a "CON". I never heard of this either until I read a column the other day by George Will about a real live case in Kentucky about a company that was required to get a '.'CON" before they could operate. More on that later, but let's get back to our own little case of Sage Smudgers Sticks of Julian and the "CON" they were required to get before they could be in business. A "CON" is short for a Certificate of Necessity or Need which is required in certain states for certain industries or businesses to prove that the business you want to engage in is really necessary for the public good. Never mind that we live in a capitalistic society and if you want to put your money, hard work and smarts where your mouth is, then go for it. Well...this hasn't always been the case. Often times when a "CON" is required in starting a new business, not only do you have to get a certificate to operate, you also have to let your competitors, that are already in the business, know you're going to do it. And... those competitors have the right to oppose your application. And... let's say for instance that the certificate to operate will only be "issued if the applicant is fit, willing and able properly to perform "smudging" supply and if he/she can demonstrate that existing smudging services are inadequate, and that the proposed service is or will be required by the present or future public convenience and necessity." When "CONS" are required, "Applicants (must) notify their prospective competitors, who can and often do file protests. This frequently requires applicants to hire lawyers for the hearings. There they bear the burden of proving current inadequacies and future necessities. And... they usually lose." Admittedly the quoted portions of the paragraphs above are from Will's column and state statutes about a real live case in Kentucky, which has a "CON" requirement for moving companies. In Kentucky, Wildcat Movers wanted to operate statewide and was denied a "CON" that was required for movers in Kentucky. In fact there were thirty-nine applications by movers in Kentucky in the six years leading up to 2012 and only three moved past the hearing process due to the overwhelming protests of the" existing movers (the competition). Of the three companies that made it past the hearings, none were granted "Certificates Of Necessity." This is America, land of the free, the greatest garage starting, enterprising entrepreneurial society on earth. A Certificate of Necessity? You couldn't make this up. But it's true. The Wildcat Moving Co. didn't take it lying down and sued in Federal Court. They won, citing "the CON processviolatesthe Constitution's equal protection clause because it is a "competitors' veto" that favors existing companies over prospective rivals; that the statute's requirements ("inadequate," "convenience," "necessity") are unconstitutionally vague; and that the process violates the 14th Amendment's protections of Americans' "privileges or immunities," including the right to earn a living." Originally created in the 1880's to promote, regulate and stimulate investment in railroads and public utilities, "CONS" have crept into an unwary public where business and politicians and the courts have aligned to reduce competition and control the growth of some industries at the cost of others. "CONS" have an unholy alliance between the elected .class and businesses of all stripes including railroads, streetcar lines, hospitals and health-care facilities, parking lots, cab companies and ambulance services etc. Ultimately, because it reduces competition the benefit to the public is circumspect. The benefit to existing operators is evident. The courts have been reluctant to and have not struck down a major "CON, since 1932 in the New State Ice Co. v.
