THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE RAISING THE SALARIES OF DoE BUREAUCRATS. YET, WITH ALL HOUSE REPUBLICANS VOTING NO, THE BILL STILL PASSED AND IS NOW IN CONFERENCE COMMITTEE.
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2434, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SALARIES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to provide the Board of Education (BOE) with more flexibility to establish the salaries of the Superintendent of Education and State Librarian by adjusting the salary caps to:
(1) For the Superintendent of Education, 150 percent of the highest salary for a principal based on the salary schedule included in the most recent collective bargaining agreement; and
(2) For the State Librarian, 150 percent of the salary of the highest-paid DOE librarian.
The Governor's Administration, BOE, and Hawaii State Public Library System provided comments.
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. 2434, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
MARCUS R. OSHIRO, Chair
