RE: S.B. No. 813
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. 813, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHARTER SCHOOLS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to require each charter school authorizer to provide the authorizer's respective charter school with a list of independent auditors, rather than selecting three independent auditors, from which their respective charter school is to select an independent auditor for its annual financial audit.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the State Public Charter School Commission. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from the Hawaii Academy of Arts & Science Public Charter School.
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. 813, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
