Utah Will Study the Issue of Mandatory Education

House Bill 351, sponsored by Rep. Paul Ray, would require Austin massage therapy licensees to complete twenty-four hours of mandatory continuing education during each 2 year renewal cycle.  You may read ABMP’s letter to the bill sponsor and committee members regarding our concerns here. The bill was heard by the House Health and Human Services Committee on February 27, 2013 and several committee members and testifiers voiced similar concerns with the bill. As a result, the Committee referred the bill to the House Rules Committee with the recommendation that they move the bill to interim study.

Interim Committees study key issues facing the state and recommend legislation for the upcoming session. These committees meet between legislative sessions from April through November and serve as an opportunity for the public to speak and give their input to the legislature concerning matters being considered. Offering opinions regarding issues being considered in the interim committees is an excellent way to participate in the lawmaking process and ABMP will inform members when the opportunity arises.
