Bill Caption

Relating to cosmetology licensing and sanitation requirements.

Fiscal Notes

From the Legislative Budget Board: no significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1088 would amend the Occupations Code to allow academic credit hours to go toward the hours of instruction requirement for a cosmetology operator license. Also, a private beauty culture school or vocational cosmetology program in a public school would be able to administer a practical examination.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill enhances our free market and limited government principles by decreasing regulation on how to fulfill hours of instruction and where to take a practical exam for a cosmetology operator license, making it easier to earn a living. We support SB 1088.
