Alderman Laurino co-sponsored a resolution last fall which lead to the hold of hearings regarding House Bill (HB) 4264. That bill required cosmetologists to obtain domestic violence and sexual assault awareness training in order to be re-certified by the State of Illinois. The Cool County State's Attorney was among those who testified at the hearing in support of the bill. This publicity helped lead to the passing of HB4264.
This bill was signed last week by Governor Rauner and is now law.
