HB2557, The Massage Therapy Licensure Act, was introduced into the Health and Human Services Committee of the Kansas House of Representatives.

A hearing for HB2557, The Massage Therapist Licensure Act scheduled for 2/19/18 has  been cancelled.

To read the bill, please click on this link:

KATMB will remain neutral on the proposed legislation based on the current language of the bill, however, we know that our members have varying opinions about the licensing of our profession.
If you would like to send an email message to the chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee (where the bill has been introduced), please follow these basic guidelines:
Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee is the Honorable Representative Daniel Hawkins.  His email address is dan.hawkins@house.ks.gov
Introduce yourself, tell him where you live, what you do, how long you’ve been practicing, and then tell him either that you are in favor of massage therapy licensing and support HB2557, or that you oppose licensing for massage therapy and oppose HB2557, and give him a short explanation why.
The only way this committee will know how this proposed bill might affect our lives and practices is if we tell them.
