STAND. COM. REP. NO.2981
RE: H.B. No. 2580
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations, to which was referred H.B. No. 2580 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DRIVER LICENSING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to distinguish the examination, licensing, and operation of mopeds from that of motor scooters and motorcycles.
Testimony in support of the measure was received from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee finds that under existing law, persons may use mopeds to meet the licensing requirements in section 286-102, Hawaii Revised Statutes, for motor scooters. This measure would distinguish mopeds as class 1 vehicles and motor scooters and motorcycles as class 2 vehicles.
Your Committee believes that the measure will conform licensing requirements to the definitions of mopeds, motor scooters, and motorcycles found in Section 286-2, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2580, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations,
CAL KAWAMOTO, Chair
