The California Massage Therapy Council.


Existing law establishes the California Massage Therapy Council, and tasks it with, among other things, issuing certificates to practice as a massage therapist and approving massage therapy schools. Existing law authorizes the board of directors, which governs the council, to establish fees for initial certification, and renewal of certification, in an amount sufficient to support the functions of the council. Existing law requires the board, before holding a meeting to vote upon a proposal to increase the certification fees, to provide at least 90 days' notice of the meeting, as specified. Existing law authorizes the council to charge a reasonable fee for inspection or approval of schools, provided the fees do not exceed the reasonable cost of the inspection or approval process. This bill would expand the requirement that notice be provided at least 90 days in advance of a meeting to vote upon a proposal to increase certification fees, to also apply to a meeting to vote upon a proposal to increase fees for inspection or approval of schools.
