House Bill 222 sponsored by Rep. Claman removes harmful licensure requirements for Manicurists
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 5, 2017
Juneau – Last week, the Alaska House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation relating to the licenses for Alaska’s manicurists and nail technicians. House Bill 222 repeals burdensome 2015 legislation, which required all manicurists to meet the standards of an advanced manicurist. The 2015 bill disadvantaged current license holders and small Alaska businesses. House Bill 222 would allow experienced manicurists to continue practicing without requiring redundant training. Current law impacts over 900 practicing manicurists in the state of Alaska. Several individuals have contacted Representative Matt Claman (D-Anchorage) to ask more questions about the bill and its status in the Senate. To better answer their questions, Representative Claman is hosting a question and answer forum this weekend.
