New Hampshire Voluntary Licensing Bill Defeated

On January 5, 2012, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to defeat HB 446. The bill would have changed the mandatory licensing of several professions, including massage therapists and bodyworkers, to voluntary “licensing.” ABMP was opposed to the bill. ABMP thanks members who contacted, or met with, state representatives and asked them to vote “no” on HB 446. We believe this successful outcome is a testament to the importance of legislators hearing from their constituents.
