STAND. COM. REP. NO. 244
RE: H.B. No. 867
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 867 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to effectuate its title.
H.B. No. 867 was introduced as a short-form bill, which is sometimes referred to as a "vehicle" bill primarily used to introduce a bill containing only a general idea as to the purpose of the bill without specific details in the long form.
Your Committee has amended the bill to provide the substantive contents of the bill in long form so that a public hearing may be properly held on its substantive contents.
The purpose of this bill, as amended, is to establish a Chief Recruitment Officer position within the Department of Human Resources Development (DHRD) to facilitate and expedite the hiring and recruitment for civil service positions within DHRD's jurisdiction. The Chief Recruitment Officer shall also have the authority to abolish or reclassify vacant civil service positions, subject to notice to the Legislature.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the action to report out H.B. No. 867, as amended herein, and recommends that it be recommitted to your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, for the purpose of holding a public hearing thereon, in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 867, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
AARON LING JOHANSON, Chair
