Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services and Housing, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 54 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES TO DRAFT NECESSARY PROPOSED LEGISLATION TO ENABLE THE STATE COMMITTEE OF BLIND VENDORS TO EXPEND FUNDS FROM THE RANDOLPH-SHEPPARD REVOLVING ACCOUNT TO HIRE LAWYERS OR OTHER CONSULTANTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF BENEFITING BLIND VENDORS OF HAWAII,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to request the Department of Human Services (DHS) to draft necessary legislation to enable the State Committee of Blind Vendors to expend funds from the Randolph-Sheppard revolving account to hire lawyers or other consultants for the purpose of benefiting blind vendors of Hawaii.
DHS testified in opposition of this measure.
Your Committee finds that further discussion is needed on this measure and respectfully requests that the next committee also explore the legal issues related to this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services and Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 54 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services and Housing,
MICHAEL P. KAHIKINA, Chair
