The state of Rhode Island licenses 69 professions, everything from hairdressers to electricians. Until now, license holders have had to renew by mail or in person. But all that’s changing Tuesday.
The state is rolling out a new e-licensing system Tuesday. It will allow anyone with a professional license to get a new one or renew an old one online. Paul McGreevy, director of the Department of Business Regulation, says it’s part of the governor’s initiative to make it easier to do business in Rhode Island.
