RE: H.C.R. No. 143
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Lower & Higher Education, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 143 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A HAWAII COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTANCE LEARNING CENTER IN THE PUNA DISTRICT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to urge the University of Hawaii to study the feasibility of establishing a Hawaii community college distance learning center in the Puna District, due to the remote location of the Puna District and the impact of the 2018 Kilauea disaster on the district's infrastructure that is needed to access the University of Hawaii's community college system.
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 concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 143 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Lower & Higher Education,
JUSTIN H. WOODSON, Chair
