To quote a letter written to Diana Bonn 6/99, "..the Board has a policy against the use of MMA Liquid Monomers and pursuant to that policy has instructed all of its inspectors to check for them when inspecting nail technicians. At this time, it is the Board's opinion that legislation is not required and the situation can be handled by its policy."
