STAND. COM. REP. NO.244-02
RE: H.B. No. 2447
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services and Housing, to which was referred H.B. No. 2447 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION OF HAWAII,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to correct an inconsistency in the Housing and Community Development Corporation of Hawaii's (HCDCH) provisions relating to judicial review of contested cases. This bill conforms these provisions to the Administrative Procedures Act as found in chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS).
HCDCH testified in support of this bill.
Under section 91-14, HRS, an agency is required to transmit the record of a contested case proceeding to the court within 20 days after the contents of the record have been determined. However, section 201G-57, HRS, currently requires HCDCH to turn over its records within 15 days. This bill amends section 201G-57, HRS, by allowing HCDCH 20 days to transmit its records to the court.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services and Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2447 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services and Housing,
MICHAEL P. KAHIKINA, Chair
