Sir:

 

Your Committee on Lower & Higher Education, to which was referred H.B. No. 843 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO HAWAII COMMUNITY COLLEGE,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to strengthen vocational education and workforce development on Hawaii island by appropriating $170,000 for each year of fiscal biennium 2019-2021 for three non-tenure track, full-time, temporary positions for the applied technical education program at Hawaii Community College.

 

The University of Hawaii and Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii supported this measure.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by:

 

(1) Deleting the amount of the appropriations; and

 

(2) Changing its effective date to July 1, 2050,

 

to encourage further discussion.

 

Should your Committee on Finance choose to deliberate further on this measure, your Committee respectfully requests that it appropriate $170,000 for each year of the fiscal biennium 2019-2021 for the program.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Lower & Higher Education that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 843, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 843, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
