STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2394
RE: S.B. No. 2795
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Government Operations, to which was referred S.B. No. 2795 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ADDRESS CONFIDENTIALITY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to appropriate money for a full-time position, operating costs and equipment to administer the Lieutenant Governor's Address Confidentiality Program to protect survivors of domestic abuse.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Lieutenant Governor, Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii, the Domestic Violence Action Center, and an individual. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from an individual.
Your Committee finds that moneys are necessary to implement the program, and that the Act establishing the program did not make the necessary appropriations.
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 Government Operations that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2795, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2795, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Government Operations,
LAURA H. THIELEN, Chair
