     AN ACT relating to inactive license status for cosmetology licensees.
     Amend KRS 317A.050 to create an inactive license for cosmetology licensees; exempt inactive licensees from annual continuing education and license renewal; allow an inactive license to be restored and give the board the discretion of imposing one year of continuing education requirements as a condition; prohibit an inactive licensee from practicing cosmetology for consideration, but allow an inactive licensee to purchase supplies; and specify various fees.
