Unnecessary increase of license fee

We completely understand the need to increase the license fee but to increase it more than double the original fee was completely unnecessary.  If there should be any increase in fees it should be in small increments.  We talked to many Comotologist and found majority of them decided to leave the profession since the fee is too great for them to pay.

You mention that there are other programs that needs to be funded too but are those program really necessary?  Couldn't they be combined to lessen the large fee?  

Yes, we area all suffering from the economy but that doesn't mean you should drag us cosmotologist further down the dirt and then leave us hanging under the sorching sun.
