Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Education, to which was referred H.B. No. 1527, H.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE ON EARLY LEARNING BUDGET,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to appropriate or authorize funds for programs of the Executive Office on Early Learning for the 2019-2021 fiscal biennium.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Executive Office on Early Learning, Early Learning Board, Kamehameha Schools, and O‘ahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i.
Your Committee finds that this measure expresses programs or positions, maximum sums appropriated or authorized, or means of financing indicated for programs of the Executive Office on Early Learning to be incorporated into the General Appropriations Act of 2019, or other appropriate legislative vehicle, or to be adopted separately.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Deleting the program appropriations and inserting the program appropriations related to Early Learning (EDN700) from S.B. No. 90, S.D. 2 (Regular Session 2019); and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
Your Committee requests that if your Committee on Ways and Means passes this measure that it consider incorporating the items in this measure into the appropriate legislative vehicle or amend this measure to include any provisions necessary to effectuate its purpose and intent.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1527, H.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1527, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
MICHELLE N. KIDANI, Chair
