Representative Roegner Provides Testimony For Cosmetology Reform Legislation
House Bill 189 proposes comprehensive reform to unreasonable cosmetology licensure practices

COLUMBUS—State Representative Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) today provided sponsor testimony on House Bill 189, legislation that would make changes to the Cosmetology Licensing Law.

House Bill 189, sponsored by Rep. Roegner and State Representative Alicia Reece (D-Cincinnati) seeks to accomplish the following:

• Focus on cosmetology student success in entering the beauty industry with less debt and greater ability to repay student loans
• Facilitate a continuous workforce development pipeline for salons
• Reduce the amount of unnecessary regulations placed on members of the cosmetology industry and make it easier for Ohioans to begin or expand their business in the state

“From small business owners to aspiring cosmetologists, this legislation would remove significant barriers to success,” said Rep. Roegner.

This bill is supported by the Ohio Salon Association, the only business trade association in Ohio representing the interests of small business job providers and salon owners across the state. It is also supported by the Future of the Beauty Industry Coalition, a national coalition of cosmetologists, students, salon owners, manufacturers, publishers, distributors, and cosmetology schools.

The bill received its first hearing in the Government Accountability and Oversight Committee today and awaits further discussion.
