Honorable Scott K. Saiki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Thirtieth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2019

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 312, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CREATIVE MEDIA,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to strengthen creative media education in Hawaii by requiring the University of Hawaii, West Oahu, to offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in creative media to any student who successfully completes an approved course of study and other requirements established by the University of Hawaii.

 

The Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism, Searider Productions, Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, and a few concerned individuals supported this measure. The University of Hawaii System opposed this measure.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 312, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
