STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1911
RE: H.B. No. 123
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. 123, H.D. 2, 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 Hawaii Department of Agriculture biocontrol foreign exploration special fund.
Your Committee received written comments on this measure from the Department of Agriculture and Tax Foundation of Hawaii.
Your Committee finds that the Hawaii Department of Agriculture biocontrol foreign exploration special fund contains a zero balance, does not meet the criteria for a special fund, is no longer needed, and should thus 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. 123, H.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
