STAND. COM. REP. NO.2490
RE: S.B. No. 2693
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2693 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purposes of this measure are to:
(1) Repeal provisions that create a public assistance debt against a responsible parent for public assistance provided to a child;
(2) Require a payment of child support to the Department of Human Services for periods when public assistance is paid for the benefit of the child; and
(3) Allow an order or judgment from a state other than Hawaii regarding child support to be recorded in the bureau of conveyances.
Your Committee finds that the provisions in this measure bring Hawaii law into compliance and accordance with federal law with respect to calculating repayment obligations for public assistance and the recordation of out-of-state orders and judgments relating to child support.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2693 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
BRIAN KANNO, Chair
