Take Action in New Hampshire: Bills Lower the Beauty Bar

Anne Moratto | February 28, 2012 | 5:20 PM

From our friends at the Professional Beauty Association:

New Hampshire Legislative Update!

 New Hampshire's State Legislature will soon vote on HB1265 and HB1431 which will directly impact the professional beauty industry. 

 HB1265 establishes criteria for the regulation of occupations and professions by boards and commissions as authorized by law, and provides that an individual may engage in a legal occupation (such as cosmetology) without being subject to laws that regulate the occupation or profession which are arbitrary, unnecessary, or substantially burdensome.

BILL SPONSORS: Representatives Spec Bowers, Joshua Davenport, Seth Cohn, and George Lambert.

HB1431 repeals the requirements of high school education and hours of training or apprenticeship required for obtaining a barber license, leaving as requirements only good professional character, passage of an examination, and paying the license fee.

BILL SPONSORS: Representatives Spec Bowers, Tammy Simmons, Peter Hansen, Jason Antosz, Michael Reed, Donald LeBrun, and Kyle Tasker.

 Licensed professionals, business owners, distributors, and manufacturers maintain a high standard of professionalism and legitimacy through education, best practices, health and safety, and complying with regulations that protect the industry as well as the consumer.  These bills does not support our industry or our professional goals.
