STAND. COM. REP. NO. 152
RE: S.B. No. 1188
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 1188 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN EMERGENCY APPROPRIATION TO THE HAWAII COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to make an emergency appropriation to fund payroll and administrative costs for the Hawaii Community Development Authority.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation; Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism; and Hawaii Community Development Authority.
Your Committee finds that Hawaii Community Development Authority staff salaries for fiscal year 2018-2019 were funded by an appropriation from the Hawaii community development revolving fund. However, that appropriation did not include funds for fringe benefit costs. Accordingly, this measure makes an additional appropriation to fully fund those salaries, fringe benefits, and administrative costs through the end of the current fiscal year.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the amount appropriated to an unspecified amount;
(2) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion on the measure; and
(3) Making technical nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
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 S.B. No. 1188, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1188, S.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
