The Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor
Friday, March 20, 2015
HB 1370, HD 1, Relating to Divorce.
Dear Chairperson Keith-Agaran and Committee Members:
The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA) has reviewed the proposed measure. Of concern is the high cost attached to the changes necessary to the existing data/accounting of Employees’ Retirement System (ERS) to obtain the modifications sought in the proposal. The lack of appropriations to address the antiquated nature of the current data system is of concern. The impact of any change is then borne by ERS and must be built into the existing liability and operational costs of the agency.
UHPA requests that this measure be deferred.
Associate Executive Director
