Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Humane Euthanasia in Animal Shelters Act. Changes references from "Director" to "Secretary". Removes a requirement for certified euthanasia technicians to renew his or her certification every 5 years. Makes changes to provisions concerning investigations, hearings, certification of record, criminal penalties, confidentiality, and surrender and restoration of certificates. Provides that the Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation may summarily suspend the certificate of a euthanasia agency or euthanasia technician without a hearing, simultaneously with the institution of proceedings for a hearing, if the Secretary finds that the evidence indicates that the continued practice of the certified euthanasia agency or technician would constitute cruelty or an imminent danger to the public. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
Senate Committee Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill. Amends the Humane Euthanasia in Animal Shelters Act. Provides that every 2 years (rather than 5 years) a certified euthanasia technician must renew his or her certification with the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Provides that if the Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation disagrees with the recommendation of the hearing officer on an action for refusal to issue or renew a certificate or for the discipline of a certified euthanasia agency or technician, then the Secretary may issue an order in contravention of the report (rather than if the Secretary disagrees with the recommendation of the board or hearing officer). Effective immediately.
