                                   RE:  S.B. No. 808
                                        




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

Sir:

     Your Committee on Transportation and Intergovernmental
Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 808 entitled: 

     "A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO LIQUOR LICENSES,"

begs leave to report as follows:
     
     The purpose of this measure is to add assault to the list of
criminal activities that the liquor commission may consider in
revocation or suspension of renewal of an existing liquor
license.

     Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure
from the Ala Moana/Kakaako Neighborhood Board No. 11 and two
individuals.

     Your Committee finds expanding the factors that the liquor
commission may consider during license renewals will help to
further alleviate problems for residents in neighborhoods where
these establishments are located.  The measure will give the
commission additional controls, and result in a better quality of
life for nearby residents.

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your
Committee on Transportation and Intergovernmental Affairs that is
attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the
intent and purpose of S.B. No. 808 and recommends that it pass
Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Commerce and
Consumer Protection.
