STAND. COM. REP. NO. 659
RE: H.B. No. 1420
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health, to which was referred H.B. No. 1420 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY OPERATING BUDGET,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the expenditure of additional funds and create additional positions in the operating budget for fiscal years (FY) 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 for the Department of Public Safety (Department).
(2) Making a nonsubstantive, technical amendment for the purpose of clarity and consistency.
Your Committee on Health notes that this measure as written only includes additional funding for the Department of Public Safety and does not include the base budgetary needs for the Department.
Should your Committee on Finance deliberate further on this measure, your Committee on Health respectfully requests that your Committee on Finance consider the amounts appropriated in the Executive Budget that was transmitted to the Legislature on December 17, 2018. Your Committee on Health further requests that your Committee on Finance consider including both the base budgetary needs and any additional add-ons for the Department in one measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1420, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1420, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health,
JOHN M. MIZUNO, Chair
