RE: S.B. No. 1137
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 1137, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE SPOUSE AND CHILD ABUSE SPECIAL FUND,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to amend the cap for the Spouse and Child Abuse Special Fund to allow for federal reimbursements received from the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, to be retained in the year following the fiscal year in which Family First Prevention Services funds and Title IV-E funds were expended.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Inserting a five-year sunset on the Spouse and Child Abuse Special Fund and specifying that any unencumbered remaining balances shall lapse to the general fund; 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 Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1137, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1137, S.D. 2, H.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
