STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1974
RE: S.B. No. 1373
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 S.B. No. 1373, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE ON AGING ADMINISTRATIVE CLAIMING SPECIAL FUND,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify the allowable revenues to be deposited into the Executive Office on Aging Administrative Claiming Special Fund and the uses for which the special fund may be expended.
Your Committee finds that programs within the Executive Office on Aging are eligible to receive Medicaid administrative claiming funds. However, the existing statutory language and framework are narrow and unintentionally restrict the use of funds. This measure allows for monies within the Executive Office on Aging Administrative Claiming Special Fund to be used for programs within the Executive Office on Aging, thereby allowing the Office to provide broader services to more clients.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to June 30, 3000, to encourage further discussion.
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 S.B. No. 1373, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1373, S.D. 1, 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
