A BILL FOR AN ACT

 

 

RELATING TO STATE FUNDS.

 

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 


PART I

SECTION 1. The COVID-19 pandemic has swept across the nation and many parts of the world with unanticipated force and brought enormous challenges for governments at all levels. These challenges provide opportunities to restructure.

The legislature finds that, fundamentally, non-general funds must be reviewed and scrutinized just as much as general funds to determine if resources are being deployed effectively and efficiently.

The purpose of this Act is to trigger a full accounting of various non-general funded program objectives, performance, and results and transfer excess balances of identified non-general funds to the general fund.

SECTION 2. The legislature determines that there are amounts in excess of the requirements of the various funds listed in this Act. The director of finance is authorized to transfer the following amounts or so much thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2020-2021 from the following funds to the general fund:

Account Code - Fund Name

Minimum amount in excess of the requirements of the fund as determined by the legislature ($)

Amount authorized to be transferred to the general fund by the director of finance ($)
