                   A  BILL  FOR  AN  ACT

MAKING AN APPROPRIATION FOR VETERANS CEMETERIES.



BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

 1      SECTION 1.  The legislature finds that burials for qualified
 
 2 veterans and their dependents in veterans cemeteries on Hawaii,
 
 3 Kauai, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and the Hawaii state veterans
 
 4 cemetery on Oahu is an honor reserved for those who served their
 
 5 country in either peacetime or wartime.  Establishment of these
 
 6 veterans cemeteries reflects the commitment of the people of
 
 7 Hawaii to those who served in the armed forces of the United
 
 8 States.
 
 9      The legislature further finds that Hawaii's veterans
 
10 cemeteries suffer from inadequate care and maintenance due to the
 
11 lack of sufficient funding necessary to maintain these facilities
 
12 at the level they deserve.
 
13      The purpose of this Act is to provide adequate funds for the
 
14 care and maintenance of veterans cemeteries in Hawaii.
 
15      SECTION 2.  There is appropriated out of the general
 
16 revenues of the State of Hawaii the sum of $62,000, or so much
 
17 thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2000-2001, for the
 
18 maintenance of state veterans cemeteries in the county of Hawaii.
 
19      SECTION 3.  There is appropriated out of the general

 1 revenues of the State of Hawaii the sum of $25,000, or so much
 
 2 thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2000-2001, for the
 
 3 maintenance of the state veterans cemetery in the county of
 
 4 Kauai.
 
 5      SECTION 4.  There is appropriated out of the general
 
 6 revenues of the State of Hawaii the sum of $62,000, or so much
 
 7 thereof as may be necessary for fiscal year 2000-2001, for the
 
 8 maintenance of state veterans cemeteries in the county of Maui.
 
 9      SECTION 5.  The sums appropriated shall be expended by the
 
10 department of defense for the purposes of this Act.
 
11      SECTION 6.  This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2000.
