Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 2089 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PUBLIC SAFETY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to appropriate funds for the plans and design of the Hawaii State Emergency Training Academy (Academy) at Kalaeloa, Oahu.
The Department of Defense, Department of Public Safety, State Fire Council, the Honolulu Fire Department, the Hawaii State Fire Fighters Association, the Honolulu Police Department, and Seafarers International Union testified in support of this measure.
In light of the events of September 11th, your Committee finds that the proposed Academy will enhance public safety by offering standardized, advanced training to the panoply of emergency personnel involved in protecting the public statewide.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2089 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Public Safety and Military Affairs,
