                                     H.D. 1

Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twentieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 1999
State of Hawaii


     Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which
was referred H.B. No. 1006 entitled: 


begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this bill is to establish a sentencing
simulation model to permit an assessment of the impact of current
and proposed sentencing policies, including truth-in-sentencing
and other initiatives, on existing correctional system and
community resources.

     Testimony in support of this bill was received from the
Judiciary, the Attorney General, the Department of the
Prosecuting Attorney of the City and County of Honolulu, the Maui
County Police Department, the Honolulu Police Department, and the
Hawaii County Police Department.

     Your Committee believes that a simulation model will provide
the legislature and the law enforcement community with the
necessary tools to forecast prison populations and ensure
efficient allocation of existing resources.

     Your Committee has amended this bill by:

     (1)  Appropriating $150,000 for fiscal year 1999-2000 and
          $100,000 for fiscal year 2000-2001 for the hiring of

          necessary staff and purchase of equipment and services
          for the sentencing simulation model; and

     (2)  Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for
          purposes of style and clarity.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to
this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and
purpose of H.B. No. 1006, as amended herein, and recommends that
it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No.
1006, H.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Finance.

                                   Respectfully submitted on
                                   behalf of the members of the
                                   Committee on Judiciary &
                                   Hawaiian Affairs,
