STAND. COM. REP. NO.3476
RE: H.C.R. No. 200
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Economic Development and Technology, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 200, H.D. 1, entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A TASK FORCE TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A FRESHWATER FISHERY AT THE WAHIAWA RESERVOIR, OAHU,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) to establish a task force to study the feasibility of establishing a freshwater fishery in the Wahiawa Reservoir, the findings and recommendations of which shall be submitted to the Legislature.
Testimony in support of this measure was received from the Chairperson of the Board of Land and Natural Resources, State Representative of District 40, Wahiawa Community & Business Association, Inc., Wahiawa Neighborhood Board, and an individual.
Your Committee finds that there are major opportunities for upgrading recreational fishery and improving the surrounding area that such a task force could profitably address.
Your Committee has amended this measure by having the Chairperson of the Board of Land and Natural Resources, rather than the Governor, appoint the members of the task force. Technical, nonsubstantive changes have also been made.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Economic Development and Technology that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 200, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means, in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 200, H.D. 1, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Economic Development and Technology,
ROD TAM, Chair
