Ok, you can see the complete list of A-Z agencies here for your own ideas but this is my for-sure list. I skipped over some that I would probably cut and some of these the libertarian in me told me to list them.
Some of these are clearly throwbacks to failed liberal movements such as the Commission on [fill in the blank minority] affairs. As if [fill in the blank minority]'s have different affairs than everyone else.
Then you have to wonder about body piercing licensing, tattoos, dentures etc. My position is that these industries would immediately set to regulating themselves and developing adequate standards once these agencies were disbanded. The NRA is not a government agency yet it is the absolute authority on firearms training, you must take an NRA certified class for your concealed carry permit. The National Tattoo Association or the Oregon Tattoo Association would form and license tattoo parlors and tattoo artists.
Next time you hear about government "needing money for the schools" just remember that they seem to have plenty of money for the Board of Massage Therapists!
"The Board of Massage Therapists regulates the practice of massage. This is accomplished by licensing, establishing continuing education requirements, promoting education, administering tests to establish minimum competency to practice and enforcing professional behavior and standards."
