|In the near future, I plan to reintroduce former House Bill 2447 from the 2013-2014 Legislative Session.
Recently, several members of the State Barber Board approached me with their concerns over the present lack of barber teachers in the Commonwealth. This scarcity of qualified barber teachers threatens the ability for our barber schools to continue training licensed barbers.
In order to address this shortage I am proposing changes to the Barbers’ License Law. The specific change will allow licensed barbers who have 3 years of experience or licensed manager-barbers with 1 year of experience as of January 1, 2015 to opt to become licensed as a barber-teacher without examination. This is contingent upon no record of disciplinary action and payment of the required fee.
Please join with me in co-sponsoring this change to the Barbers’ License Law to insure the continuity of this profession.
Co-sponsors of former HB 2447 are as follows:
CALTAGIRONE , COHEN , D. COSTA, FARINA, GINGRICH , McCARTER, MURT , NEUMAN and THOMAS
