STAND. COM. REP. NO.2684

Honolulu, Hawaii

, 2002

RE: S.B. No. 2323

 

 

Honorable Robert Bunda

President of the Senate

Twenty-First State Legislature

Regular Session of 2002

State of Hawaii

Sir:

Your Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 2323 entitled:

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLES,"

beg leave to report as follows:

The purpose of this measure is to allow veterans to be issued military specialty license plates for more than one noncommercial passenger vehicle.

Your Committees received comments on this measure from the Honolulu County Department of Customer Services and a proud veteran.

Your Committees find that military veterans deserve our utmost honor and respect for protecting the causes of freedom and democracy. Your Committees further find that existing law allows military veterans to receive a military specialty license plate to honor their service, but that they may only receive a specialty license plate for one vehicle.

Since many veterans own more than one noncommercial passenger vehicle, your Committees find that it makes sense to allow these proud heroes to display military specialty plates on all of their cars.

As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2323 and recommend that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Transportation, Military Affairs and Government Operations and Tourism and Intergovernmental Affairs,
