A BILL to amend and reenact §30-27-3 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to barbers and cosmetologists; and increasing the examination application fee.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That §30-27-3 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:
ARTICLE 27. BOARD OF BARBERS AND COSMETOLOGISTS.

§30-27-3. Qualifications of applicants; fees; examinations; licensure.

An applicant for licensure as a barber, beautician or manicurist shall present satisfactory evidence that he or she is at least eighteen years of age, of good moral character and temperate habits, has completed at least the eighth grade of school, or the equivalent thereof, and has been graduated from a school of barbering or beauty culture approved by the state board of barbers and beauticians, or in the case of a manicurist has successfully completed an approved course in manicuring in such a school, and shall transmit with his or her application an examination fee of twenty-five fifty dollars. The examination shall be of such character as to determine the qualifications and fitness of the applicant to practice barbering, beauty culture or manicuring as defined by this article, and shall cover such subjects germane to the inquiry as the board may deem considers proper. If an applicant for licensure as a barber or beautician successfully passes such examination and presents a certificate of health from a licensed physician and is otherwise qualified as required by this section, the board shall license the applicant as a duly qualified barber or beautician. Any applicant for license as a manicurist may be licensed as a duly qualified manicurist after he or she has passed the examination. The board shall charge twenty-five dollars for the issuance of a license.
The state board of barbers and beauticians shall promulgate rules and regulations to establish a joint barber-beautician license.
Any person who meets the requirements of this section as to age, character and health, who is a graduate of a recognized school of barbering or beauty culture in another state, or has successfully completed an approved course in manicuring in such a school, and who holds a current license as a registered barber, beautician or manicurist in another state, may file with the board an application for licensure without examination, together with a fee of fifty dollars. If in the opinion of the board such applicant has had a prescribed course of instruction in barbering, beauty culture or manicuring equivalent to that required in this state at the time such course was completed, or is otherwise properly qualified, the board may without examination issue to such applicant a license as a duly qualified barber, beautician or manicurist.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to increase the examination application fee for barbers and cosmetologists from $25. to $50.
