STAND. COM. REP. NO. 27
RE: S.B. No. 15
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Housing, to which was referred S.B. No. 15 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO THE HAWAII HOUSING FINANCE AND DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation.
Your Committee finds that this measure provides a legislative vehicle should funding become available for the purposes of this measure prior to the end of the 2019-2021 fiscal biennium.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Inserting language to appropriate, authorize, or transfer funds from various sources for specific programs, positions, and ceiling increases, as recommended by the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
Your Committee finds that this measure expresses programs or positions, maximum sums appropriated or authorized, or means of financing indicated for the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation to be incorporated into the General Appropriations Act of 2019, or other appropriate legislative vehicle, or to be adopted separately. As such, your Committee requests your Committee on Ways and Means to incorporate the items in this measure into the appropriate legislative vehicle or amend this measure to include any provisions necessary to effectuate its purpose and intent.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 15, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 15, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Housing,
STANLEY CHANG, Chair
