STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Amend section 54-807, Idaho Code, to eliminate the practice of
apprentices in Idaho. The Idaho Board of Cosmetology has
concluded that apprentices were not being adequately trained due
to the low examination pass rate and that the public and
apprentices were not being protected.
There is no impact on general or dedicated funds.
