Cosmetology licensing again under scrutiny



Clere said while the bill has its merits, the committee would have some serious concerns to weigh with each career field if SB 520 passes.

“As a general proposition, I support periodic review of licenses and I support consolidation, streamlining and reduction of bureaucracy when possible, but we have to be cautious,” Clere said. “I don’t support elimination for the sake of elimination. With a cosmetology license, there is a public interest in licensing.”

Mary Taylor said she hopes the bill comes under the same fate HB 1006 did for the sake of her students and people who patronize salons.

“I feel like we need to be trained properly in how to use the chemicals we have. I don’t just want anyone to put chemicals in my hair,” she said. “It’s also a health issue; we have to be taught about communicable diseases and sterilization. I can’t see that [licensing] is a big money issue. I just don’t understand why they would want to do away with this.”
