                                   RE:  H.B. No. 314
                                        S.D. 2




Honorable Norman Mizuguchi
President of the Senate
Twentieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 1999
State of Hawaii

Sir:

     Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B.
No. 314, S.D. 1, entitled: 

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE STATE AQUARIUM,"

begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this bill is to allow current management
arrangements at the State Aquarium to continue until June 30,
2004.

     Your Committee finds that current plans by the University of
Hawaii to relocate its aquarium to Kakaako will cause a delay in
the transfer of the aquarium's management beyond the scheduled
transfer date of June 30, 1999.

     Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the
effective date from upon approval to June 29, 1999.  Your
Committee finds that this amendment is necessary because the
current management arrangements will cease on June 30, 1999.  By
making the bill take effect on June 29, 1999, your Committee
intends that the extension take effect before existing management
ceases by operation of law.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your
Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No.

Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 314, S.D. 2.

                                 Respectfully submitted on behalf
                                 of the members of the Committee
                                 on Ways and Means,
