STAND. COM. REP. NO. 864
RE: S.B. No. 864
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 864 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CHARTER SCHOOLS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to require that a minimum of two of the three independent auditors selected by the State Public Charter School Commission, which is the authorizer for public charter schools in the State, have offices on the neighbor islands.
The State Public Charter School Commission submitted written comments on the measure.
Your Committee finds that this measure's requirement that a minimum number of the independent auditors have offices on an island other than Oahu will facilitate the timely completion of public charter school audits for the consolidated annual audit report.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your
Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 864 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
