Legislative Update: Senate Bill 3064 regarding HHSC dies in session

April 26, 2014

Throughout this legislative session, Senate Bill 3064, which created a framework to outsource the Hawaii Health Systems Corporation (HHSC), underwent many revised drafts. We have been actively engaged in monitoring this bill as it moved through Session.

As we have been updating you, the House and Senate Conference committees met several times a day to work out their differences on the different drafts of the bill, including exchanging over a dozen proposed drafts in the past week. HGEA staff has been closely scrutinizing all drafts and providing input to key stakeholders. Friday, April 25 was the final decking deadline, where all bills must be agreed upon and in final form prior to voting. S.B. 3064 did not meet this critical deadline and is considered dead.

Session adjourns on May 1, and we will continue to provide you updates via eBulletin. You can also visit our website here to view the status of other measures we are tracking.
