STAND. COM. REP. NO.2647
RE: S.B. No. 2221
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 S.B. No. 2221 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO STATE FUNDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to change the Department of Accounting and General Services' annual deadline for reporting to the Legislature on the State Educational Facilities Improvement Special Fund.
Currently, the Department of Accounting and General Services is required by law to submit its annual financial statement and status report of the State Educational Facilities Improvement Special Fund to the Legislature, no later than twenty days prior to the convening of each regular session.
This bill provides an unspecified deadline for the Department to submit its report to the Legislature. Your Committee has not proposed a date for a new deadline, and instead prefers to leave the bill unamended in order to promote further discussion on this matter.
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 S.B. No. 2221 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
