Sir:

 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 388 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII ZERO TO THREE COURT,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to support the valuable work of the Hawaii Zero to Three Court by appropriating funds for each year of fiscal biennium 2019-2021 for its continued operations.

 

The Judiciary, Department of Human Services, Department of Health, Hawaii Family Support Institute, Parents And Children Together, Hawaii Children's Action Network, and Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii supported this measure.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by deleting the amount of the appropriation to encourage further discussion.

 

Should your Committee on Finance choose to consider this measure, your Committee respectfully requests that it appropriate $257,430 for each year of the fiscal biennium.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 388, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 388, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

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