STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2228
RE: S.B. No. 2207
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Education, to which was referred S.B. No. 2207 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to appropriate funds to provide public school principals with stability bonuses.
Your Committee received testimony in favor of this measure from the Department of Education, Kaimuki High School, and the Hawaii Government Employees Association.
Your Committee finds that the educational system is currently experiencing a great administrative transformation due to retirements. Bonuses will ameliorate present conditions and provide an incentive to recruit and sustain future educational officers in the Department.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your
Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2207 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
NORMAN SAKAMOTO, Chair
