Acupuncture Licensing Bill Killed By Committee
February 9, 2010, 9:29 AM
PIERRE, SD -
A bill that would have regulated acupuncturists in South Dakota was killed by a legislative committee Tuesday.
The bill would have adopted National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine standards used in 44 other states.
Castlewood Republican Rep. Kristi Noem said the measure would help protect South Dakota's eight practicing acupuncturists and differentiate them from those who have had no education or training.
Committee members said the bill needed more work before moving forward.
