KY Bill to Aid Cosmetologists Signed into Law

Last week, Governor Bevin signed House Bill 271 into law, sponsored by Representative Robby Mills, R-Henderson.

The bill will scale back excessive hourly education requirements for future cosmetologist, and in turn put Kentucky on a level playing field with neighboring states.

The bill is the first piece of legislation Rep. Mills has signed into law since his joining the House in January, and is reflective of the effective work he did to guide the bill through the process of becoming a law.

“Far too often, outdated government regulations stand in the way of individuals climbing the career latter and reaching their dreams,” said Rep. Mills. “Cosmetologists go to great lengths to train and become educated in their field, and government should do all that it can to aid them, rather than prevent them, from reaching their goals.”

The bill reduces the amount of hours required for someone to receive their apprentice cosmetologist license from 1,800 to 1,500 hours.

House Bill 271 passed both the House and Senate in unanimous fashion, receiving not a single dissenting vote.
