STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1006

Honolulu, Hawaii
, 2005
RE: S.C.R. No. 16
S.D. 1

Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-Third State Legislature
Regular Session of 2005
State of Hawaii

Sir:

Your Committees on Human Services and Health, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 16 entitled:

"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE GOVERNOR TO STUDY THE ROLE OF GESTATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS, GENTLE BIRTHING PRACTICES, DOMESTIC HARMONY AWARENESS, AND APPROPRIATE AND SUFFICIENT TOUCH AND THEIR CONNECTION TO PUBLIC POLICY CONCERNS THAT INCLUDE SUBSTANCE ABUSE, ALCOHOLISM, AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,"

beg leave to report as follows:

The purpose of this measure is to request that the Governor study the role of gestational environments, gentle birthing practices, domestic harmony awareness, and appropriate and sufficient touch and their connection to public policy concerns that include substance abuse, alcoholism, and domestic violence.

An individual submitted testimony in support of this measure.

Your Committees find that the role of gestational environments, gentle birthing practices, domestic harmony awareness, and appropriate and sufficient touch and their connection to reducing abuse of controlled substances, alcoholism, and domestic violence is worthy of study. Your Committees believe that domestic abuse, or a lack of harmony in a child's domestic situation may correlate to a propensity for that child to domestically abuse in the future.

Your Committees amended this measure to replace the Governor with the Department of Health, Maternal and Child Health Branch, as the agency to study the role of gestational environments, gentle birthing practices, domestic harmony awareness, and appropriate and sufficient touch and their connection to public policy concerns.

As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Human Services and Health that are attached to this report, your Committees concur with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 16, as amended herein, and recommend its adoption in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 16, S.D. 1.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Human Services and Health,
