STAND. COM. REP. NO.2529
RE: S.B. No. 2772
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing, to which was referred S.B. No. 2772 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TATTOO ARTISTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the denial of a tattoo artist's application for license renewal.
The Department of Health (DOH) testified in support of this measure.
Currently, the law allows the Director of Health to suspend or revoke the license of a tattoo artist for fraud, deceit, or misconduct, or for violation of DOH rules. This measure provides that, in addition, the Director may refuse to renew the license of a tattoo artist on the same grounds.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2772 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing,
RON MENOR, Chair
