RE: S.B. No. 1173
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services & Homelessness, to which was referred S.B. No. 1173, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHILD SUPPORT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Imposing a fine against an employer who:
(A) Fails to withhold support from income or pay amounts to the Child Support Enforcement Agency; or
(B) Discriminates against an employee because of the existence of a child support income withholding order, instead of being guilty of a misdemeanor; and
(2) Increasing the annual fee imposed by the Child Support Enforcement Agency.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the fines imposed against an employer from $1,000 to $250; and
(2) Changing its effective date to January 1, 2059, to facilitate further discussion.
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 is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1173, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1173, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services & Homelessness,
JOY A. SAN BUENAVENTURA, Chair
