                                   RE:  S.C.R. No. 4
                                        S.D. 1




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

Sir:

     Your Committee on Health and Human Services, to which was
referred S.C.R. No. 4 entitled:

     "SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OBSERVING 1999 AS THE
     INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF OLDER PERSONS,"

begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this measure is to observe 1999 as the
International Year of Older Persons.

     Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure
from the Executive Office on Aging and Hawaii Long Term Care
Association.

     Governor Benjamin Cayetano has signed a Proclamation
declaring 1999 as the International Year of Older Persons in
Hawaii.  Older persons in Hawaii have shaped society and
contributed to communities by imparting their wisdom and
establishing a heritage and tradition for generations to come.
The International Year of Older Persons provides a special
opportunity to honor Na Kupuna in Hawaii and the world for the
many years they spent giving to others and sharing their
knowledge and experiences.  

     Your Committee has amended this measure by correcting
references in the BE IT RESOLVED clause to the Twentieth
Legislature and the Regular Session of 1999.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your

 
a                                                     SCR4 SD1

                                   Respectfully submitted on
                                   behalf of the members of the
