STAND. COM. REP. NO. 690
RE: H.B. No. 1081
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 1081, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PENALTIES FOR UNLICENSED CARE HOMES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify the penalty to be assessed on any person who intentionally operates a care facility without a certificate or license.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Health.
Your Committee finds that repealing the specific penalties for persons who intentionally operate a care facility without a certificate or license will provide the Department of Health with greater flexibility to impose administrative penalties for violations.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1081, H.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
