Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 888, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, entitled:

begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to appropriate funds to support the operations of the Maui Health System, A Kaiser Foundation Hospitals LLC.

Your Committee finds that as the only health care provider on the neighbor islands that provides cardiac surgery, interventional cardiology, interventional neurosurgery, and neurosurgery, the operations of Maui Health System, A Kaiser Foundation Hospitals LLC, are critical to the health and well-being of many of the State's residents and visitors.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the appropriations to unspecified amounts to facilitate further discussion on the measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B.
