RE: H.C.R. No. 139
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 139 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, IN CONSULTATION WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS OF THE VARIOUS COUNTIES, TO EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A STATE HIGHWAY PATROL FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENFORCING STATEWIDE TRAFFIC SAFETY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to request the Department of Transportation, in consultation with the police departments of the various counties, to examine the feasibility of establishing a State highway patrol for the purpose of enforcing statewide traffic safety.
Your Committee held a hearing on a proposed House draft requesting the Auditor to conduct a study on voluntary employee benefit associations to determine their feasibility as viable health insurance plans for public employees, retirees, and their dependents.
Your Committee received supportive comments from the Auditor. The HSTA Voluntary Employees Beneficiary Trust testified in opposition.
Your Committee has accordingly amended this measure by deleting its contents and title and replacing them with those of the proposed House draft.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 139, as amended herein, and recommends its adoption in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 139, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
DWIGHT Y. TAKAMINE, Chair
