METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires licensure and inspection of establishments for massage therapy; reflexology, structural integration and Asian bodywork therapy; tattooing, body piercing, or branding, and clarifies the licensure renewal for practitioners and apprentices.  The bill establishes a new classified position of investigative paralegal, labor grade 22, in the Division of Health Professions within the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification (OPLC).  The investigative paralegal would be hired to start on July 1, 2019 with total annual position costs of $103,000 in FY 2020 (includes one time expenses of $1,500 for a computer and $25,000 for a vehicle and $3,600 in annual travel costs), $80,000 in FY 2021, $84,000 in FY 2022 and $87,000 in FY 2023.  

 

OPLC reports there are currently 1,831 licensees in the 3 classifications of licensed professions at the end of FY 2018.  Assuming one third of the 1,831 licensees may require an establishment license and these establishments are not licensed pursuant to any other occupation or profession regulated by the OPLC, or that another fee amount is applicable via rules adopted by the OPLC Executive Director, then 610 (1,831 / 3 = 610) licensed establishments would be required to pay a licensing fee of $110 every other calendar year.  Potential new revenue is estimated at $67,100 in every other calendar year (610 x $110).  Half of this revenue, or $33,550, accrues in each fiscal year.  In addition, existing excess license revenues from the three specified classifications of licensed professions would be available to fund the investigative paralegal.  The FY 2018 license revenues, expenditures and total excess revenue of these professions are as follows:

$61,955

 

Fines may also be assessed during inspections for violations of RSA 314-A, which may increase general fund revenue by an indeterminable amount.  

 

The Advisory Board of Massage Therapists will now receive mileage and a per diem payment of $50 of each day devoted to the work of the board.  It is estimated that the 3 member board will meet quarterly and will incur the following annual costs:

 

  1. 3 members x 4 meetings per year x $50 per day = $600
  2. 3 members x 4 meetings per year x $17.40 mileage reimbursement per meeting= $209

 

All projected revenues and expenses accrue to the OPLC Fund pursuant to RSA 310-A:1-e, I(b).

 

This bill contains penalties that may have an impact on the New Hampshire judicial and correctional systems.  There is no method to determine how many charges would be brought as a result of the changes contained in this bill to determine the fiscal impact on expenditures.  However, the entities impacted have provided the potential costs associated with these penalties below.

It should be noted that average case cost estimates for FY 2020 and FY 2021 are based on data that is more than ten years old and does not reflect changes to the courts over that same period of time or the impact these changes may have on processing the various case types.  An unspecified misdemeanor can be either class A or class B, with the presumption being a class B misdemeanor.

Many offenses are prosecuted by local and county prosecutors.  When the Department of Justice has investigative and prosecutorial responsibility or is involved in an appeal, the Department would likely absorb the cost within its existing budget.  If the Department needs to prosecute significantly more cases or handle more appeals, then costs may increase by an indeterminable amount.  

 

Violations of this statute by a person would take place within the context of that person's role as an owner, manager or agent to open, establish, conduct or maintain an establishment and it would therefore by unlikely that he or she would meet the eligibility standards for the appointment of counsel established by RSA 604-A:2-c.  Based on this assumption, there will be no fiscal impact on the operations of the Judicial Council as a result of the bill.
