Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 2493 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAIIAN HOMES COMMISSION ACT, 1920, AS AMENDED,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to extend the transfer rights of a homestead lessee, who is at least one-quarter Hawaiian and received an interest in a tract of land through succession or transfer, to transfer the lessee's leasehold interest to a brother or sister who is at least one-quarter Hawaiian.
