Government Oversight Committee Report – Week 17, 2018

HF 2475­ – Small change to the ethics and regulation of lobbyists and gifts;
HF 2488 – Provides a temporary permit to practice cosmetology. 

 

FLOOR ACTION:

HF 2475 concerns the ethics and regulation of lobbyists and gifts. Currently, the definition of “lobbyist” has eight exceptions, including that a person is not a lobbyist if they are a member, director, trustee, officer or committee member of a business, trade, labor, farm, professional, religious, education or charitable association, foundation or organization who is not paid or is not specifically designated as a lobbyist. For that exception to apply, the person must not be paid compensation AND must not be specifically designated as a lobbyist. A House amendment changes the title slightly and makes the bill effective upon enactment.

HF 2488 allows the Board of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences to issue a temporary permit to practice cosmetology to demonstrate cosmetology arts and sciences or to provide cosmetology arts and sciences services at not-for-profit events. Such a permit must be issued for a specific event and may be issued to a salon, school of cosmetology arts and sciences or person. The temporary permit must be posted and visible to the public at the location where the cosmetology arts and sciences services are provided. The temporary permit is valid for no more than 12 days, and an applicant must submit a completed application and an application fee at least 30 days before the permit is needed. The board cannot issue more than four temporary permits to an applicant in a calendar year. A person providing cosmetology arts and sciences services at a not-for-profit event must hold a current license to practice.
