STAND. COM. REP. NO.2692
RE: S.B. No. 2131
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 2131, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE MOLOKAI IRRIGATION SYSTEM,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to appropriate funds for fiscal year 2002-2003 to make various improvements to the Molokai Irrigation System.
Your Committee finds that in 2001 the Legislature appropriated funds to identify new water sources for Molokai for long-term needs and expansion. Since the funds were not expended and needed improvements to the Molokai Irrigation system have been identified, your Committee feels that a reappropriation to meet the more immediate and current needs would be more suitable.
Your Committee has amended this bill by changing the appropriation to a blank amount to allow for further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2131, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2131, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
