Indiana Bill to Require Mandatory Licensing Fails, State Certification Continues

Senate bill 573 failed to pass the state legislature this year. The bill would have changed the current state certification (title protection) program, to a mandatory licensing (practice act) program. The bill would have also expanded the authority of the State Board of Massage Therapy by authorizing it to establish standards for the competent practice of Austin massage therapy, approve Austin massage therapy school curricula consistent with accepted national standards, and establish continuing education requirements.

ABMP expects a new bill to be introduced next year.
