STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1168
RE: H.R. No. 152
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Culture, Arts, & International Affairs, to which was referred H.R. No. 152 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE CONVENING OF A CREATIVE RESURGENCE TASK FORCE TO BUILD AND FOSTER CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION THROUGH THE ARTS, CULTURE, AND HUMANITIES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the creative industry. Your Committee further finds that a broad-based effort by the public and private sectors is needed to create strategies to build and foster creativity in the State and develop recommendations for statutory action to support and encourage access to the creative sector and advance and diversify the creative economy.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Including the Director of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism as a member of the task force;
(2) Removing the Executive Director of The Pōpolo Project and Hawaii Strategy Lab as a member of the task force; and
(3) 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 Culture, Arts, & International Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 152, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as H.R. No. 152, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Culture, Arts, & International Affairs,
CEDRIC ASUEGA GATES, Chair
