Honorable Scott K. Saiki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Thirtieth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2019

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 1164 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DEFERRED MAINTENANCE,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to convene a Deferred Maintenance Task Force within the Office of the Governor to develop consistent criteria and standardized methodology to address the deferred maintenance backlog of state-owned buildings, facilities, and other improvements.

 

The Judiciary and Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii supported this measure. The Department of Accounting and General Services offered comments.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by:

 

(1) Changing the appropriation for the deferred maintenance task force to develop plans to address deferred maintenance projects to an unspecified amount; and

 

(2) Changing the effective date to January 1, 2050, to encourage further discussion on this measure.

 

Should the Committee on Finance deliberate this measure further, your Committee on Labor & Public Employment respectfully requests that it consider appropriating $350,000 for each of the fiscal years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 for the deferred maintenance task force to develop plans to address deferred maintenance projects in the State.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1164, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1164, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
