State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 3180 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN EMERGENCY APPROPRIATION TO THE STATE PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL COMMISSION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to make an emergency appropriation to the State Public Charter School Commission to pay the claim and settlement amount pursuant to Miller-Potter v. State of Hawaii, et al., Civil No. 16-1-0385K.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the State Public Charter School Commission.
Your Committee finds that this emergency appropriation will allow the State Public Charter School Commission to pay the claim and settlement amount without expending funds intended for the operations of the public charter schools and the education of public charter school students.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the appropriation to an unspecified amount; and
(2) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion on the measure.
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. 3180, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 3180, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
