RE:   H.B. No. 1103

 

 

 

 

Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Fifth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2009

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

     Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 1103 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FEDERAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING SERVICES AND CENTERS,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose of this bill is to repeal the statute establishing the Statewide Council on Independent Living within the Department of Human Services, a situation that is prohibited by federal law and prevents the receipt of federal financial assistance.

 

     The Department of Human Services, State Council on Developmental Disabilities, Statewide Independent Living Council, and several concerned individuals supported this bill.  A concerned individual opposed 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 H.B. No. 1103 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
