STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1283
RE: H.C.R. No. 7
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health, Human Services, & Homelessness, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 7 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING THE LEGISLATURE TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS RAISED AT THE TWENTY-SEVENTH CHILDREN AND YOUTH SUMMIT AND ADVANCE PATHWAYS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE HOMELESS IN THE STATE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to urge the Legislature to address the concerns raised at the twenty-seventh Children and Youth Summit and advance pathways for the betterment of the homeless in Hawaii.
Your Committee finds that the Children and Youth Summit is an annual event that brings together hundreds of children throughout the State who work to identify key issues they believe the Legislature needs to address to make Hawaii a better place to live, learn, and work. Your Committee further finds that the need to help the homeless through the provision of resources, including skills development training and available housing, was one of the areas of concern identified at the twenty-seventh Children and Youth Summit.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Removing the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives as recipients of certified copies of this measure; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health, Human Services, & Homelessness that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 7, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 7, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health, Human Services, & Homelessness,
RYAN I. YAMANE, Chair
