STAND. COM. REP. NO.2149
RE: S.B. No. 2594
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Health and Human Services and Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2594 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DRUGS,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to appropriate $10,000 to reduce drug abuse.
Your Committees received oral testimony in support of the measure from the Narcotics Enforcement Division of the Department of Public Safety.
Your Committees find that the Narcotics Enforcement Division of the Department of Public Safety conducts numerous free public presentations annually to deter drug abuse through education. Although the department leverages public resources by partnering with schools and private nonprofit organizations, it still has expenses related to producing photocopied handouts and other educational materials. This measure would help meet those expenses.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Health and Human Services and Judiciary that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2594 and recommend that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Health and Human Services and Judiciary,
BRIAN KANNO, Chair
DAVID MATSUURA, Chair
