STAND. COM. REP. NO. 603
RE: H.B. No. 835
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Corrections, Military, & Veterans, to which was referred H.B. No. 835 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE NATIONAL GUARD YOUTH CHALLENGE ACADEMY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the Hawaii National Guard Youth Challenge Program (Program) is a community-based program that provides and teaches life-changing structure, values, and skills for "at promise" youth throughout the State. The Program provides the necessary services to divert "at promise" youth from the juvenile justice system and also serves as a much-needed alternative to detention.
Should your Committee on Finance choose to hear this measure, your Committee notes that the recommended appropriation amount for the program is $1,700,000.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to July 1, 3050, to encourage further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Corrections, Military, & Veterans that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 835, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 835, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Corrections, Military, & Veterans,
TAKASHI OHNO, Chair
