STAND. COM. REP. NO. 431-18
RE: H.B. No. 2530
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce, to which was referred H.B. No. 2530, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHILD CARE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to balance access to affordable regulated child care with insurance coverage requirements for child care providers and give the Department of Human Services (DHS) additional time to develop and implement a compliance process to verify that a regulated child care provider maintains liability insurance. Specifically, this measure:
(1) Eliminates the requirement that DHS determine the amount of liability insurance regulated child care providers must obtain; and
(2) Delays the:
(A) Reporting requirement on issues related to liability insurance requirements for child care providers; and
(B) Implementation and enforcement of liability insurance requirements.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2530, H.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce,
ROY M. TAKUMI, Chair
