Chapter 69 Section 2710.02

69-2710.02.

License of stamping agent; termination; grounds; cure; notice; reinstatement; removal from directory; grounds; cure; notice; procedure.

(1) The license of a stamping agent may be subject to termination if its similar license is terminated in any other state based on acts or omissions that would be grounds for license termination under subsection (2) of section 69-2709, unless the stamping agent demonstrates that its termination in the other state was effected without due process. If a stamping agent's license is terminated in another state for a violation similar to a violation listed in subdivision (2)(a), (b), (c), or (d) of section 69-2709 that was not knowing or intentional, the stamping agent shall not be subject to license termination if the stamping agent fully cures such violation and provides notice of such cure to the Department of Revenue within ten days after receipt of notice of such violation. A stamping agent whose license is terminated under this subsection shall be eligible for reinstatement upon the earlier of the date specified by subsection (7) of section 69-2709 for the act or omission in question or reinstatement of its license by the other state.

(2) A tobacco product manufacturer and its brand families may be removed from the directory if it is removed from the directory of another state based on acts or omissions that would, if done in this state, be grounds for removal from the directory under section 69-2706, 69-2707, 69-2707.01, or 69-2710 or subsection (6) of section 69-2709, unless the tobacco product manufacturer demonstrates that its removal from the other state's directory was effected without due process, that it fully cured such violation and provided notice of such cure to the Department of Revenue within thirty days after receipt of notice of the violation, or that it secured a temporary injunction against removal from the directory in the district court of Lancaster County. For purposes of a temporary injunction sought pursuant to this subsection, loss of the ability to sell tobacco products as a result of removal from the directory shall constitute irreparable harm. If, after thirty days, the tobacco product manufacturer remains in noncompliance and has not obtained a temporary injunction pursuant to this subsection, the tobacco product manufacturer shall be removed from the directory. A manufacturer that is removed from the directory under this subsection shall be eligible for reinstatement upon the earlier of the date on which it cures the violation or is reinstated to the directory in the other state.

(3) The applicable procedures under section 77-2615.01 shall apply to terminations and removals under this section.
