RE: S.B. No. 2239
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2239, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO COLLEGE PLACEMENT EXAMINATION FEES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to financially assist public school students with the costs of college admission tests by appropriating funds to the Department of Education for the payment of SAT or ACT registration fees. Students in the twelfth grade and public charter school students in the eleventh or twelfth grades, who have not previously taken the SAT or ACT, are eligible.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Specifying the sum of one dollar as the appropriation amount; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for clarity and consistency.
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 S.B. No. 2239, S.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2239, S.D. 2, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
