STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1357
RE: S.B. No. 1194
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness and Corrections, Military, & Veterans, to which was referred S.B. No. 1194, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING EMERGENCY APPROPRIATIONS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY RELATING TO COVID-19 EXPENDITURES,"
beg leave to report as follows:
Your Committees find that in order for the Department of Public Safety to effectively continue the level of care and safety at all correctional facilities, and provide the law enforcement presence necessary to make COVID-19 response efforts successful, the Department requires appropriate levels of funding to support these programs and activities. This measure will provide the Department of Public Safety the necessary funding it requires to ensure the continued protection of residents and visitors in the State by making emergency appropriations for COVID-19 response efforts.
Your Committees have amended this measure by:
(1) Changing all emergency appropriation amounts to unspecified amounts; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness and Corrections, Military, & Veterans that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1194, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommend that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1194, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Pandemic & Disaster Preparedness and Corrections, Military, & Veterans,
TAKASHI OHNO, Chair
