The Impact of HF 554 on the Cosmetology Industry
We have gotten a lot of responses and questions about my Cosmetology bill and I thought it would be good for you to hear a follow-up from me and from those who would have their very livelihoods changed.
We sat down with Nino Altobelli, Vice President of Rocco Altobelli Salons, and Lara Kelley, Owner of Minnesota School of Beauty, to discuss my cosmetology bill, HF 554, and the impact it would have on the industry.
This bill would get rid of the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology, and instead allow for salon licenses to be issued by local municipalities.

The Senate Companion bill, SF 691, was heard this last week in the Senate State Government Finance & Policy committee. While that does achieve some of our goals toward meeting deadlines, it was amended dramatically in that committee in ways that I do not support so our original House language is what I will present when it is heard in the House.
