JBE’s newly-appointed cosmetology board members’ actions immediately greeted with a lawsuit by the Institute for Justice.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards


Sound Off Louisiana founder Robert Burns provides commentary on the latest lawsuit filed against the Louisiana State Board of Cosmetology (the first as a direct result of actions of Gov. John Bel Edwards’ newly-appointed members):

Burns outlines the lawsuit and provides his own take  about why he
is so passionate about the causes of the plaintiffs in this and other
cases entailing  Louisiana occupational licensing boards and commissions.

  1. Thank you again for sounding off for the little man. We actually have to acquire 1500 hrs. to test for our license.

    1. Thanks for the correction, Ray! That makes it that much worse. I’d bluntly called it what it is in being “slave labor” at 1,200 hours. Now that you’ve corrected me to the correct total of 1,500, it’s even more a case of slave labor! Thanks for that correction.
