Current Bill Summary

SB 935 - Under current law, barber shop owners must obtain a license before commencing business. This act establishes a 45-day grace period for obtaining a license when a barber shop either changes ownership or location. During this period, the sanitary inspector shall conduct inspections without requiring the barber shop to close business or deviate from its regular hours of operation.

Under current law, barbers must be licensed to practice their profession. This act removes all licensing requirements for barbers but retains all of the present requirements for the licensure of barber shops. The new language regarding barber shops mirrors the present requirements and reenacts those requirements in a more appropriate chapter.
