WILL’s lawsuit challenges the Minority Business Development Agency, which was enacted into law through the 2021 Infrastructure Act.

WILL was contacted by an applicant who had been struggling for over four months to obtain a Professional Counselor Training License (“LPC-IT license”) from DSPS’s Professional Counselor Section, a subsection of the MPSW Board.

This was shocking because the applicable statute expressly states that a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling does meet the licensing requirement.
