STAND. COM. REP. NO.2596
RE: S.B. No. 2275
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. 2275 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO THE MAUI ADULT DAY CARE CENTER,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to appropriate moneys to the Department of Human Services for the Maui Adult Day Care Center.
Specifically, this bill appropriates $250,000 in fiscal year 2002-2003 to provide activities and activity materials, administrative expenses, fee waivers, and operating expenses for the Maui Adult Day Care Center, to be expended by the Department of Human Services.
Your Committee finds that the number of elders in the State continues to increase. The services provided in adult day care centers are valuable resources that helpp to prevent premature institutionalization for this segment of the population. The Maui Adult Day Care Center provides relief for working families, structured activities for its clients, and is affordable.
Upon further consideration, your Committee has amended this bill to change the appropriated amount to a blank amount for the purpose of promoting further discussion.
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. 2275, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2275, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
