                   A  BILL  FOR  AN  ACT

RELATING TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.



BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 1      SECTION 1.  Section 89-10, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is
 
 2 amended by amending subsection (b) to read as follows:
 
 3      "(b)  All cost items shall be subject to appropriations by
 
 4 the appropriate legislative bodies.  The employer shall submit
 
 5 within ten days of the date on which the agreement is ratified by
 
 6 the employees concerned all cost items contained therein to the
 
 7 appropriate legislative bodies, except that if any cost items
 
 8 require appropriation by the state legislature and it is not in
 
 9 session at the time, the cost items shall be submitted for
 
10 inclusion in the governor's next operating budget within ten days
 
11 after the date on which the agreement is ratified.  The state
 
12 legislature or the legislative bodies of the counties acting in
 
13 concert, as the case may be, may approve or reject the cost items
 
14 submitted to them, as a whole.  If the state legislature or the
 
15 legislative body of any county rejects any of the cost items
 
16 submitted to them, all cost items submitted as well as all
 
17 noncost items shall be returned to the parties for further
 
18 bargaining."
 
19      SECTION 2.  New statutory material is underscored.
