STAND. COM. REP. NO.1063-02
RE: H.R. No. 44
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.R. No. 44 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE AUDITOR TO ANALYZE THE PROBABLE EFFECTS OF PROPOSED REGULATION OF ATHLETE AGENTS AND ASSESS WHETHER ITS ENACTMENT IS CONSISTENT WITH STATE POLICY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to direct the Auditor, in accordance with section 26H-6, Hawaii Revised Statutes, to analyze the probable effects of regulating athlete agents, and to assess whether enactment of the Uniform Athletes Agent Act would be consistent with state policy.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, the Hawaii Commission on Uniform State Laws, and the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Legislation introduced as H.B. No. 1824 of the 2002 Regular Session proposed enactment of the Uniform Athlete Agents Act. Your Committee finds this resolution necessary because the Hawaii Regulatory Licensing Reform Act, chapter 26H, Hawaii Revised Statutes, requires such new regulatory measures to be referred to the Auditor for analysis.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 44 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs,
ERIC G. HAMAKAWA, Chair
