STAND. COM. REP. NO.3265
RE: H.B. No. 1725
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 1725, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DRIVER LICENSE RENEWAL BY MAIL,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to allow a person unable to appear in person before the examiner of drivers to apply for renewal of their driver's license by mail.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation and Honolulu Department of Customer Services.
Your Committee finds presently that driver's license renewal by mail is restricted to residents who are temporarily out of State. Since there are no residency restrictions for the initial issuance of a driver's license and since applicants for renewal by mail are required to have a physical examination as a prerequisite for renewal, driver's license renewal by mail should be offered to all licensed drivers.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1725, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
BRIAN KANNO, Chair
