STAND. COM. REP. NO.2180
RE: S.B. No. 2375
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing, to which was referred S.B. No. 2375 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO HIRE SECURITY GUARDS AND TO PURCHASE SECURITY CAMERAS FOR SENIOR AND DISABLED RESIDENCE COMPLEX,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to provide funding for security measures at the State senior and disabled residence complex on Oahu.
The Housing and Community Development Corporation of Hawaii testified in support of this measure.
The State operates three residences for senior and disabled persons on Oahu at Hale Po'ai, Halia Hale, and Puahala Homes. Residents of the homes have been victims of serious crimes, including assault, burglary, and robbery. This measure appropriates funds to provide security personnel and to install security cameras at the complex. Your Committee finds that the implementation of security measures will help to deter and reduce crimes committed against some of the community's most vulnerable residents.
Your Committee has amended this measure by inserting an effective date of July 1, 2050.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2375, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2375, S.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection and Housing,
RON MENOR, Chair
