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. 945, H.D. 1, entitled: 

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO AGRICULTURAL PARKS,"

begs leave to report as follows:

     The purpose of this bill is to allow commercial activity
under certain restrictions on agricultural parks.

     This bill allows agricultural park lessees to process,
market, and display agricultural crops or commodities including
products created through value added processes on agricultural
park complexes.  Lessees may sell their products to the public
provided the commercial operation is owned by a lessee in good
standing.

     Your Committee has amended the bill by exempting commercial
use from Department of Land and Natural Resources agricultural
park restrictions under section 166-6(1), Hawaii Revised
Statutes.

     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. 945, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass

 
a                                                     HB945 SD1
