Important Legislative Update: Minnesota Bill 696
Senators in Minnesota are reviewing Senate File 696 (SF 696), a bill that would allow eyelash technicians and salons that solely provide eyelash extensions to operate without being licensed. This is an effort to reduce regulations in the cosmetology industry. Requiring licenses ensures that the necessary education, training, and techniques, including health and safety, are used to protect the provider and customer. You can view SF 696 here.
SF 696 is currently with the State Government Finance and Policy and Elections Committee. The committee will be discussing the bill this Thursday, February 14, at 1:00 p.m. If you want to comment on the bill, please reach out to the bill sponsor, Senator Mark W. Koran, and the chair of the committee, Senator Mary Kiffmeyer. Their details can be found here.
