Hope everyone remembered to go and comment on MTBOK.org website regarding our scope of practice.
Currently 2 bills that are similar in nature HB633 and SB966 have created lots of attention in the Dept of Health. The wording on the 2 bills have been sent back to committee for re-wording because members of Congress have contacted those that work at the Dept of Health so more information will be forth coming in the next newsletters.
HB 139 has been sponsored which will allow a new massage therapist to NOT have to take a certification test to get a license if certain courses were taken at a accredited massage therapy school. The FSMTA has come out against this bill, due to the fact that many unqualified therapists would be able to get licensed simply by sitting through a class.
Legislative Awareness Days will be March 23 – 25 this year. More information will be available at the next meeting.
