Bill description: SB 1287 allows barber schools and cosmetology schools to request retroactive reinstatement of an expired license, up to 90 days after the original renewal date. Rating: +1 Does it increase barriers to entry into the market? Examples include occupational licensure, the minimum wage, and restrictions on home businesses. Conversely, does it remove barriers to entry into the market?
According to the statement of purpose for this bill, there has been one case in the last four years involving a barber school or cosmetology school failing to renew its license before it expired. Due to federal laws requiring schools to maintain continuous licensure in order for their students to qualify for federal aid, a school’s failure to renew its license could keep its students from getting aid.
SB 1287 aims to prevent this from happening by letting a barber school or cosmetology school request a retroactive reinstatement of its expired license up to 90 days after the original expiration date. This would only be allowed in cases where there were no other causes for the school's license to have been lapsed or canceled, and the school has paid all costs and penalties imposed for renewal and reinstatement.
