STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1770
RE: H.B. No. 122
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 122 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO NON-GENERAL FUNDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to abolish the juvenile accountability block grant trust fund as recommended by the Auditor in Auditor's Report No. 18-11.
Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Tax Foundation of Hawaii.
Your Committee finds that the juvenile accountability block grant trust fund no longer serves the purpose for which it was created and thus should be abolished.
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 H.B. No. 122, 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 Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
