A BILL FOR AN ACT


 

 

RELATING TO THE AFTER-SCHOOL PLUS PROGRAM REVOLVING FUND.

 

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 


SECTION 1. The legislature reaffirms its intent to support the after-school plus program revolving fund primarily through program participant fees. The legislature, however, finds that the program is also being supported in part by general fund appropriations and funds from the department of human services for child care for eligible low income children.

The purpose of this Act is to limit deposits into the revolving fund to only those funds that are collected as fees or charges for participation in the program and the interest earned on the revolving fund deposits.

SECTION 2. Section 302A-1149.5, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended to read as follows:

"[[]302A-1149.5[]] After-school plus program revolving fund. (a) There is established in the state treasury the after-school plus program revolving fund to be administered by the department.

(b) The after-school plus program revolving fund shall consist of[:

(1) Fees] fees collected by the department for [administering and operating] the after-school plus program[,] and [the provision of program services;

(2) Legislative appropriations;

(3) All] all interest earned on the deposit or investment of moneys in the after-school plus program revolving fund[; and

(4) Any other moneys made available to the after-school plus program revolving fund from other sources].

(c) The department may establish appropriate fees and other charges to be assessed to each participant for [the cost of administering and operating] the after-school plus program. The revenues from those fees and charges shall be deposited into the revolving fund to be used [to pay the costs of administering and operating] for the program."

SECTION 3. Statutory material to be repealed is bracketed and stricken. New statutory material is underscored.

SECTION 4. This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2008.
