Amend the bill in section 2 in §775 by striking out all of subsection 3-A (page 2, lines 34 to 42 and page 3, lines 1 and 2 in L.D.) and inserting the following:
The superintendent's office shall distribute the work permit to the minor , unless the minor is seeking a permit directly from the bureau in accordance with subsection 1, in which case the bureau shall issue the work permit directly to the minor and provide a copy to the superintendent of schools of the school administrative unit in which the minor resides. The work permit is valid only for the employer and positions listed on the permit as issued by the bureau.’
This amendment strikes the portions of the bill that allow a minor to obtain a work permit directly from the Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Standards when school is not in session and replaces them with language providing that, when school is not in session, if a school superintendent does not respond to a work permit request within 2 business days, the minor may obtain a work permit directly from the bureau.
