Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives

Regular Session of 1999
State of Hawaii

Sir:

     Your Committee on Conference on the disagreeing vote of the
Senate to the amendments proposed by the House of Representatives
in S.B. No. 1270, S.D. 1, H.D. 2, entitled:  

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION," 

having met, and after full and free discussion, has agreed to
recommend and does recommend to the respective Houses the final
passage of this bill in an amended form.

     The purpose of this measure is to allow private schools to
develop procedures for obtaining verifiable information regarding
the criminal history of persons who are employed or are seeking
employment in positions which place them in close proximity to
children.  In addition, this measure includes teacher trainees in
public schools as subject to criminal history record checks.

     Your Committee has amended this measure by making a
technical, nonsubstantive change for the purpose of clarity.

     Your Committee on Conference is in accord with the intent
and purpose of S.B. No. 1270, S.D. 1, H.D. 2, as amended herein,

 
a                                                     SB1270 CD1
