STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2996
RE: S.B. No. 2263
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2263, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO EDUCATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to broaden the scope of profit-making operations students can engage in at schools to include commercial enterprises and allow students to receive either school credit or compensation when they engage in profit-making operations.
Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
Your Committee finds that the Hawaii P-20 Partnerships for Education is a statewide partnership led by the Executive Office on Early Learning, Department of Education, and University of Hawaii System to strengthen the education pipeline from early childhood through postsecondary education using training through data-informed decision-making, advocacy, policy coordination, and stakeholder engagement, in support of student achievement. This measure will enhance the work-based learning throughout the P-20 continuum as students engage in comprehensive, real-world immersive experiences particularly in the areas of entrepreneurship and strategic commercial enterprise.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2263, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2263, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
