Author: Senator Karin Housley
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: March 7, 2017


Section 1 [Salon manager] defines salon manager.

Section 2 [School] modifies the definition of “school.”

Section 3 [Designated licensed salon manager] modifies the definition of “designated licensed salon manager.”

Section 4 [School manager] modifies the definition of a “school manager.”

Section 5 [Requirements] modifies a requirement for obtaining a salon license relating to the manager.

Section 6 [Standards] is a clean-up change reflecting changes made to cosmetology licensing made in an earlier year.

Section 7 [Conditions precedent to issuance] adds an exemption for cities with fewer than 100 employees (that is already available to cities with 100 or more employees) to carry a corporate surety bond to operate a cosmetology school.

Modifies the surety bond requirement for cosmetology school licensees to require that the surety bond be for an amount no less than ten percent of gross income, or $10,000, whichever is higher.

Section 8 [EFFECTIVE DATE] pushes out the rulemaking period for mobile salons by one year.  The board of cosmetology will not be able to enact rules until January 1, 2017, and must complete them by January 1, 2020.

Section 9 [EYELASH TECHNICIAN GRANDFATHERING] sets a procedure and criteria for issuing licenses for eyelash technicians for applicants who apply for a license between August 1, 2017, and January 31, 2018.

Section 10 [EYELASH TECHNICIAN RULEMAKING] authorizes the Board of Cosmetologist Examiners to adopt rules governing eyelash technician and salon licenses. This section permits the board to use the expedited rulemaking process.

Section11 [EYELASH TECHNICIAN LICENSING] precludes issuing eyelash practitioner licenses before February 1, 2018, except for the licenses issued under section 9.

Section 12 [REPEALER] repeals a definition for “manager.”
