This bill appropriates funds for the Oversight Coordinator position and other necessary staff for the Hawaiʻi Correctional System Oversight Commission. Governor Ige has failed to release funds appropriated by Act 179 (SLH 2019) necessary for the Commission to accomplish its mission, which includes ensuring that the Hawaiʻi Department of Public Safety comes into compliance with its legal obligations to provide comprehensive reentry planning. Reentry planning is critical in fostering a smooth and successful transition from incarceration and back into society.
