STAND. COM. REP. NO.3183
RE: H.B. No. 1878
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 1878, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to establish the Hawaii State Student Council by statute.
Your Committee finds that the State Student Council gives many students an opportunity to get involved in matters of education that affect and may be of interest to students. By establishing a formal statutory provision for the council, continuity would be assured. It is important that legislators keep in touch with the views of the upcoming generations through the resolutions and discussions that take place at the Hawaii State Student Council and the annual State Student Conference where secondary school students from around the State attend workshops and meetings.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1878, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
