STAND. COM. REP. NO.3424
RE: S.C.R. No. 107
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Education, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 107 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE LEGISLATIVE REFERENCE BUREAU TO EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ADDING SURFING AS A COMPETITIVE INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Legislative Reference Bureau to examine the feasibility of adding surfing as a competitive interscholastic sport.
Your Committee received testimony in opposition to the measure from the Department of Education. Comments were offered by the Legislative Reference Bureau.
Your Committee finds continuation of the discussion to advance the cutoff date for kindergarteners to be a more pressing public need than examining the feasibility of adding surfing as a competitive interscholastic sport. Therefore, your Committee has amended the measure by replacing its contents with language from S.B. No. 2032 to plan and consider an accelerated kindergarten age program and a possible two-tier kindergarten program.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 107, as amended herein, and recommends its adoption in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 107, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
NORMAN SAKAMOTO, Chair
