                                   RE:  S.B. No. 1271
                                        S.D. 1

Honorable Norman Mizuguchi
President of the Senate
Twentieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 1999
State of Hawaii


     Your Committee on Education and Technology, to which was
referred S.B. No. 1271 entitled: 


begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this measure is to enable the Department of
Education to collect fees for all supplementary, discretionary
instructional services to students during times when school is
not in session.

     Testimony in support of this measure was submitted by the
Department of Education.

     Your Committee finds that this measure will extend the
authorization for tuition collections and exemptions from central
service and administrative costs to all other discretionary,
supplemental instructional programs which operate during "out-of-
school" time, and which need to be financially self-supporting.
For many years, the Department of Education has been offering
supplemental instructional services to students in grades K-12
during "out-of-school" time.  Passage of this bill would provide
greater flexibility for individual schools to design and offer a
variety of programs responsive to their students' needs, and to
ensure the adequacy of resources for doing so.

     Your Committee amended this measure by adding two new
sections which amend sections 36-27 and 36-30, Hawaii Revised
Statutes, to exempt the actions taken in this measure from being

a                                                     SB1271 SD1
                                   STAND. COM. REP. NO. 117
                                   Page 2

repealed under Act 216, Session Laws of Hawaii 1997, and Act 142,
Session Laws of Hawaii 1998.  The measure as introduced did not
appropriately amend the effective dates of these Acts.  By
failing to make the proper amendments as provided by your
Committee, no one would have been able to determine the changes
to those Acts at a later date.  Thus, these amendments were made
by your Committee to properly set forth the amendments to these
Acts.  Your Committee deleted all the improper language relating
to this problem after the effective date of this bill.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Education and Technology that is attached to this
report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose
of S.B. No. 1271, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass
Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1271,
S.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.

                                   Respectfully submitted on
                                   behalf of the members of the
                                   Committee on Education and

                                   DAVID Y. IGE, Chair

a                                                     SB1271 SD1
