Idaho SB 1078 Withdrawn by Sponsor

SB 1078 was formally withdrawn by Senator Hammond (the bill sponsor) when it became clear that Senate Health and Welfare Committee would not have time to consider it. While on the surface it may seem disappointing to many people, the good news is that we have been able to complete an excellent draft bill this year that has the support of key massage therapy organizations, other licensed healthcare professions, and state regulatory departments. If the political climate is more favorable in 2012, expect the bill to be introduced again. Sincere thanks to Senator Jim Hammond for all of his efforts this year on our behalf.
