Honorable Donna Mercado Kim
President of the Senate
Twenty-Seventh State Legislature
Regular Session of 2014
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 2288, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to amend or repeal various sections of chapter 302A, Hawaii Revised Statutes, that:
(1) Have been accomplished;
(2) Impede the Department of Education in meeting its core mission;
(3) Fall under the authority of the Board of Education;
(4) Are mandated by federal law; or
(5) Are covered by another section of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, administrative rules, or Board of Education policy.
No written comments were received on this measure by your Committee.
Your Committee finds that Act 133, Session Laws of Hawaii 2012, sought to clarify or resolve conflicting or inconsistent language in different sections of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, and amended or repealed various sections of chapter 302A, Hawaii Revised Statutes. Your Committee further finds that this measure continues this effort to clarify the provisions of chapter 302A, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion on this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2288, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2288, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
