Sir:

     Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which
was referred H.B. No. 1454 entitled: 

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FEES,"

     Your Committee has amended this bill by making technical,
nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of style and clarity.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to
this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and
purpose of H.B. No. 1454, as amended herein, and recommends that
it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No.
