|Legislative Update - 2014-05-19|
Update: These bills are currently dead in committee however the bills can be reintroduced into the house or senate if any representative sponsors the bill. If this happens we will keep you up to date.
There have been two bills introduced into the House of Representatives for the State of Missouri, House Bill 1891 and 1824 that will impact the the massage therapy profession but as geologists, landscape architects, barbers, cosmetologists, embalmers, athletic agents, professional sports agents, and private investigators.
HB 1824 would allow anyone to practice a regulated profession without licensure, as long as that person did not claim to be licensed or certified. This a a very dangerous precedent.
The biggest impact of HB 1824 would be to make it impossible for licensing boards to pass regulations of almost any kind. Eventually licensing boards would not be able to regulate their professions. A number of problems could arise with passage of these bills. Please be aware of just some of the following problems of that may arise if these bills are passed:
Please contact your representative and tell them that you oppose these bills but also have your fellow therapists, clients, family, and friends contact their legislators and tell them that they oppose these bills for the reasons above. If people do not know who their representatives are they can use this link:Find your representative. It is important for people who contact legislators to tell them that they are constituents. They should not say they vote unless they actually do vote, since that information is easily available to legislators.
