STAND. COM. REP. NO. 760
RE: H.B. No. 977
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce, to which was referred H.B. No. 977, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PURCHASES OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the Community Council on Purchase of Health and Human Services was established with the purpose of providing input and advising the State Procurement Administrator in developing rules, infrastructure, and procedures for procuring health and human services. Your Committee further finds that the administrative rules for the law governing the procurement of health and human services are established and that the Community Council has not convened since April 22, 2010. This measure therefor eliminates an obsolete section and body that is no longer needed.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 977, 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 Consumer Protection & Commerce,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
