Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. Section 87GGG of chapter 112 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1988 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following two paragraphs:-
Any person who has been licensed as a qualified electrologist or a qualified instructor, or any person to whom a license to conduct a school of electrolysis has been issued, who fails to renew such license upon its expiry date, may renew the same upon application therefor and payment of the regular renewal fee at any time within two years after said expiry date. If such person fails to renew his license prior to the expiration of such two year period, he shall be required to file an application for reinstatement together with a reinstatement fee. Such fee shall be determined annually under the provision of section three B of chapter seven.
The board shall grant the application and issue a renewal license within ninety days after receipt of the application, unless it determines after hearing that the applicant committed an act during the time after his license expired that would justify the revocation of his license under the provisions of section sixty-one or section eighty-seven III.
SECTION 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of section eighty-seven FFF of chapter one hundred and twelve of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the board of registration of electrologists is hereby authorized and directed to renew the license of Maya Berlina to practice electrolysis upon the payment of the appropriate fee.
