Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2878, H.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MASSAGE THERAPY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Requiring the Board of Massage Therapy, rather than the Department of Health, to adopt and enforce sanitary rules for massage therapy establishments;
(2) Repealing the penalty for unlicensed practice of massage therapy in favor of existing law that treats unlicensed activity as a misdemeanor; and
(3) Increasing the fines for violations of the laws regulating massage therapy.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2878, H.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
