03/27/19 -- HCS HB 472 -- Various occupational licensing reforms
HCS HB 472, introduced by Representative Derek Grier (Republican - District 100) does a variety of things related to occupational licensing reform:
- It incorporated the "Fresh Start Act" from HCS HB 564 that I wrote about previously.
- Incorporates HB 470, which I wrote about also.
- Slightly lowers the number of hours of training needed to obtain a cosmetology license.
- Removes the age requirements to obtain a plumber's license.
For the same reasons that I supported HCS HB 564 and HB 470, I was pleased to vote "yes" on this bill as well.
