STAND. COM. REP. NO.523-02
RE: H.B. No. 2514
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health, to which was referred H.B. No. 2514 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TATTOO ARTISTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to authorize the Department of Health (DOH) to suspend, revoke, or deny the renewal of a license to a tattoo artist applying to be licensed.
DOH testified in strong support of this measure.
Your Committee finds that DOH currently has the authority to revoke or suspend the license of a tattoo artist who violates the provisions of the statute or administrative rules. This measure purports to clarify that DOH would also have the authority to deny the renewal of a license to a tattoo artist.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2514 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health,
DENNIS A. ARAKAKI, Chair
