RE: H.B. No. 1022
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 1022 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FUNDING ADJUSTMENTS FOR STATE PROGRAMS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to appropriate funds to various programs to cover anticipated operating shortfalls due to the limited ability of a department to transfer funds between programs of that department.
Your Committee finds that this measure provides for anticipated transfers between departmental programs to address budget shortfalls and other program requirements.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Inserting anticipated departmental transfers for quarters 3 and 4 of fiscal year 2023, as provided by the Department of Budget and Finance, for the Department of Public Safety, Department of Transportation, and Department of Human Services;
(2) Changing the effective date to July 1, 3000, to encourage further discussion; and
(3) 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 H.B. No. 1022, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1022, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
KYLE T. YAMASHITA, Chair
