RE: S.B. No. 1512
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. 1512, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CREATIVE MEDIA,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to require the University of Hawaii, West Oahu, to offer a baccalaureate program in creative media.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism; Waianae High School; Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii; and four individuals.
Your Committee finds that the establishment of a baccalaureate program in creative media at the University of Hawaii, West Oahu, will enhance the position of the campus as the designated hub for creative media education in the University of Hawaii system and raise the job qualifications of the program's graduates.
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. 1512, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
