UPDATE: The bill has been withdrawn! Thanks to everyone for getting involved. Here’s an article about the withdrawal.
House Bill 1006, introduced by Rep. David Wolkins, R-Kosciusko, is set to be heard by the Employment Labor and Pensions Committee at 10:30 a.m. on Friday. In essence, licensing would be eliminated for everyone in the barbering and cosmetology fields in the state of Indiana.
Would you want a hairdresser using razors and dangerous chemicals without training or licensing? No!
