STAND. COM. REP. NO.3167
RE: H.B. No. 1806
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. 1806 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO OFFENSES AGAINST PROPERTY RIGHTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify that for offenses against property rights, the definition of "hotel" means a structure in which a majority of the tenants are roomers or boarders.
Your Committee finds that currently the law defines "hotel" as a structure in which all tenants are roomers and boarders, which is rarely the case because hotels often have retail or food service tenants as well.
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. 1806, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
BRIAN KANNO, Chair
