A multitude of special funds are slated to be on the chopping block with the introduction yesterday of Hawaii Senate Bill SB120, to repeal certain special funds and transfer balances to the state general fund. The question arises, if a special fund is repealed, and the fund is paid for by users’ fees, does the user fee get reduced or does it stay the same and essentially that extra money becomes a tax to go into the general fund? The bill does not address this issue.
