State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Education, to which was referred H.B. No. 1853 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to make statutory requirements for food available at public schools consistent with state wellness guidelines and administrative practice by:
(1) Prohibiting the sale of ice cream and candy by public schools, unless permitted in writing from the Department of Education (DOE); and
(2) Removing the requirement that the Comptroller advise DOE in the adoption of rules for the section.
DOE supported this bill.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1853 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
ROY TAKUMI, Chair
