RE: S.B. No. 1307
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. 1307, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING THE RESOURCES AND ORGANIZATION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING AND GENERAL SERVICES WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ON THE ISLANDS OF KAUAI, MAUI, MOLOKAI, LANAI, AND HAWAII ISLAND,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to appropriate funds for the Department of Education to study the feasibility of combining the resources and organization of the Department of Accounting and General Services with the Department of Education on the islands of Kauai, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Hawaii.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Education and one individual.
Your Committee finds that currently, the Department of Accounting and General Services is tasked with facilities maintenance and support services for neighbor island schools. This measure seeks to determine the feasibility of the Department of Education assuming responsibility for the maintenance and support of these schools.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the appropriation from an unspecified amount to $100,000.
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. 1307, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1307, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
