10             amending K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 65-1904a and repealing the existing
11             section.
13       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
14             Section  1. K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 65-1904a is hereby amended to read
15       as follows: 65-1904a. Any licensed cosmetologist, esthetician, electrolo-
16       gist, manicurist, or person desiring to establish a salon or clinic shall make
17       application, on a form provided, to the Kansas state board of cosmetology,
18       accompanied by the new salon or clinic license fee established under
19       K.S.A. 65-1904 and amendments thereto. Upon filing of the application,
20       the board shall inspect the equipment as to safety and sanitary condition
21       of the premises and if the equipment and premises are found to comply
22       with the rules and regulations of the secretary of health and environment
23       and the rules and regulations of the Kansas state board of cosmetology,
24       the board shall issue a new salon or clinic license. Nothing herein con-
25       tained shall be construed as preventing any licensed person from practic-
26       ing cosmetology or electrology in a licensed cosmetologist's private home
27       or residence if the home or residence complies with rules and regulations
28       of the secretary and the state board. A licensed cosmetologist may make
29       application as provided in this section to provide cosmetology services in
30       a place other than the licensed salon or clinic or a private home or resi-
31       dence of the licensed cosmetologist. Excluding services provided by a li-
32       censed cosmetologist in a health care facility, hospital or nursing home or
33       in the residence of a person requiring home care arising from physical or
34       mental disabilities, in order to provide such services, such licensed cos-
35       metologist shall be employed in a salon or clinic or in the licensed cos-
36       metologist's private home or residence for at least 51% of the total hours
37       per week employed; and shall attest by affidavit that such cosmetology
38       services shall be provided only in the residence or office of the person
39       receiving services. Licensed salons and clinics may be reinspected in ac-
40       cordance with a schedule determined by the board by rules and regula-
41       tions or upon a complaint made to the board that such salon or clinic is
42       not being maintained in compliance with rules and regulations of the
43       board. The license shall expire on June 30 following its issuance. Any such


  1       license may be renewed upon application accompanied by the salon or
  2       clinic license renewal fee made to the board before July 1 of the year in
  3       which the license expires. Any license may be renewed by the applicant
  4       within 60 days after the date of expiration of the last license upon payment
  5       of a delinquent renewal fee. 
  6       Sec.  2. K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 65-1904a is hereby repealed.
  7        Sec.  3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
  8       publication in the statute book.
