RE: S.C.R. No. 37
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Health and Human Services and Housing, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 37, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE STATE AUDITOR TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO DESIGNATE A SINGLE DEPARTMENT TO OVERSEE THE FUNDING AND REGULATION OF ADULT RESIDENTIAL CARE HOMES AND FOSTER HOMES,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to request the Auditor to conduct a study to determine the appropriate state agency to oversee both the funding and regulation of adult residential care home (ARCH) and foster home facilities.
The Hawaii Coalition of Care Home Administrators testified in support of this measure.
Your Committees find that ARCHs and foster homes are an important option for individuals requiring living assistance and would like to ensure that these facilities are run as efficiently as possible.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Health and Human Services and Housing that are attached to this report, your Committees concur with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 37, S.D. 1, and recommend that it be referred to the Committee on Legislative Management.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Health and Human Services and Housing,
MICHAEL P. KAHIKINA, Chair
DENNIS A. ARAKAKI, Chair
