    Koch leads fight to deregulate African-style braiding

    The billionaire industrialist Charles Koch part of a national movement to deregulate the business of African-style braiding.

    Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a bill this month that exempts braiders from cosmetology licensing rules. Republican Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad also signed a law in the summer exempting African-style hair braiding from the 2,100 hours of training it takes to get a cosmetology license. Democrats have supported similar measures, especially after then-President Barack Obama launched an occupational licensing reform initiative last year.

    Beauty schools and some hairdressers generally oppose the deregulation efforts and argue braiders shouldn’t be excused from training and oversight in sanitation and safety.
