Update on Senate Bill 520 about eliminating licensing in Indiana. I wanted to inform everyone of the Bill before false information started. There has NOT been a decision to eliminate our licensing, many steps have to be taken first. But you should be aware it is a possibility.

Senate Bill 520 states that a committee will be created called ERASER. Creates the eliminate, reduce, and streamline employee regulation (ERASER) committee to study professional licensing in Indiana.

NOTE: This will have to pass the HOUSE and SENATE first, and would be effective July 1, 2013. IF this passes then the next step will be....

Sec. 12 (a) The following licenses shall be evaluated with a report issued on July 1, 2015, and each five (5) years thereafter:
(1) Massage therapists
(b) The licenses listed in this section are terminated July 1, 2016, unless the general assembly takes action in the 2016 legislative session to retain the licences.
NOTE: IF the ERASER Committee decides to eliminate any board, it will be the HOUSE and SENATE who will make the final decision.

Section 13 (a). The following licenses shall be with a report issued on July 1, 2016, and each five (5) years thereafter: (2) Beauty Culture (IC 25-8)

(b) The licenses listed in this section are terminated July 1, 2016, unless the general assembly takes action in the 2017 legislative session to retain the licences.

NOTE: IF the ERASER Committee decides to eliminate any board, it will be the HOUSE and SENATE who will make the final decision.

You can check the whole Senate Bill 520 on the Indiana.gov website.
Again, this information is to keep you informed and any decision that is made has to be voted on in our HOUSE and SENATE.
