RE: S.B. No. 2792
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2792, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII STATE PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEM,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to transfer the public safety functions and employees of the Department of Public Safety (PSD) providing security at public libraries to the Department of Education and the Hawaii State Public Library System. This would ensure that the safety and security of public library patrons and employees will be provided in a more efficient manner.
PSD, the State Librarian, and a concerned individual testified in support of this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2792, S.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
DWIGHT Y. TAKAMINE, Chair
