STAND. COM. REP. NO.2952

Honolulu, Hawaii

, 2002

RE: H.B. No. 2308

H.D. 2

 

 

Honorable Robert Bunda

President of the Senate

Twenty-First State Legislature

Regular Session of 2002

State of Hawaii

Sir:

Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 2308, H.D. 2, entitled:

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE COURTS,"

begs leave to report as follows:

The purpose of this measure is to delete the requirement that the director of the family court collect statistics and prepare an annual report of the court's work.

Testimony in support of this measure was received from the Judiciary.

Section 601-2, Hawaii Revised Statutes, relating to court administration, requires the chief justice to make a report to the legislature at each regular session of the business of the judiciary, and to present a six-year program and financial plan. This measure would remedy a duplication of requirements in the statutes.

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. 2308, H.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,

____________________________
