Midwest Region Legislative Review – OKLAHOMA


SB756 was recently introduced that would establish the “Oklahoma Certification Opportunity Act” which would allow an individual who is certified by a participating private certifying organization to engage “in the lawful occupation for which that individual is privately certified notwithstanding any other occupational regulation enacted by the government.” This will allow unlicensed cosmetology and barbering practitioners that are “certified” by a state approved private certifying organization. The measure further states that “a participating private certifying organization may require individuals it certifies to obtain and maintain a bond for liability that is related to the practice of the individual’s privately certified lawful occupation.”
