Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market?
This bill grants the board the ability to control what is taught and how it is taught to students of massage therapy. This legislation would add to 2012 statutes passed when the Legislature started regulating the massage therapy industry.
The bill infringes on the ability of private massage therapy schools to teach what they might believe to be the most effective methods in their practice. It should not be the duty of the board regulate massage therapy schools. Rather, the private sector has the ability to define its own education based on what is effective and what is not, as well as what works for the students who enroll in those schools. Schools providing the best education will succeed. Those that do not will fail. (-1)
