State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services & Homelessness, to which was referred H.R. No. 59 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO DEVELOP A MOBILE APPLICATION FOR REPORTING CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Department of Human Services in Conjunction with the Department of Education to develop a mobile application for reporting child abuse and neglect, and to consider:

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services & Homelessness that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 59 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services & Homelessness,
