Your Committee on Health, to which was referred H.B. No. 2335 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PHYSICIAN DISCIPLINE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to expedite the disciplinary process when a licensee of the Hawaii Medical Board is disciplined by another state or federal agency, by authorizing the Hawaii Medical Board, upon receipt of evidence of revocation, suspension, or other disciplinary action against a licensee by another state or federal agency, to issue an order imposing the same disciplinary action upon the licensee under certain conditions.
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. 2335 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health,
DELLA AU BELATTI, Chair
