STAND. COM. REP. NO.2861
RE: H.B. No. 2553
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment, to which was referred H.B. No. 2553 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE BUREAU OF CONVEYANCES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to increase the amount of funding received by the Bureau of Conveyances from fees in order to continue modernization efforts and ensure adequate staffing.
Testimony in support of this measure was received from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Your Committee finds that this measure will not raise fees for the public, but will instead allow the Bureau to retain a higher portion of the current fees to fund its programs.
Your Committee has amended this measure to correctly reflect the language in the Hawaii Revised Statutes.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2553, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2553, S.D. 1, and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment,
LORRAINE R. INOUYE, Chair
