2011 Senate Bill 857

Ban barber pole display by unlicensed hair cutters

Introduced in the Senate

Nov. 30, 2011

Introduced by Sen. John Gleason (D-27)

To revise the law that prohibits a person from earning a living as a barber unless he or she gets a state license, so that it would prohibit a person who does not have the license from displaying a barber pole. Under current law, barbering is illegal without a license, and a new barber can’t get a license unless he or she has completed a 2,000-hour course of study at a licensed barber college, and met other requirements imposed by a board comprised of existing barbers who have received political appointments to this board.

Referred to the Committee on Regulatory Reform
