Assembly Bill 2257: GED Required for Cosmetology License
John S. Wisniewski as Primary Sponsor
Vincent Prieto as Primary Sponsor
Previously, a cosmetology license could be issued to anyone with “successful completion of high school or the equivalent.” The phrase “the equivalent” though often understood to mean a GED, could also mean completion of high school in a homeschool setting, since 18A:38-25 refers to “equivalent instruction elsewhere than at school.”
This bill deletes the “equivalent” language and replaces it with a GED requirement.
