STAND. COM. REP. NO.261-02
RE: H.B. No. 2310
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 2310 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO VENUE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of the bill is to remove an outdated exception to venue in civil actions where a party cannot be served.
Your Committee received testimony in support of the measure from the Judiciary.
Your Committee finds that this exception is irrelevant because every individual can currently be served in all circuits statewide.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2310 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 and Hawaiian Affairs,
ERIC G. HAMAKAWA, Chair
