Key Issues

2019 Legislative Assessment Form – Support IACS’ Effort in Protecting Your School

New 101st Illinois General Assembly Begins January 2019

The 101st Illinois General Assembly begins January 2019. IACS anticipates upwards of 10,000 new pieces of legislation to be introduced over the course of the next two years. IACS actively reviews all bills introduced to ensure that any legislation deemed harmful to the cosmetology school industry is prohibited from moving forward. In addition, IACS will lobby for any issues, either in Rule or in the Legislature, that better protects its members, students and the customers they serve.

Key issues in the coming months include “tipping” (no compensation) Rule; possible increase in nail curriculum hours; finding remedy for conflicts of the domestic violence requirement and the new sexual harassment continuing education CE requirement.
