STAND. COM. REP. NO.2476
RE: S.B. No. 2481
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2481, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO LIVESTOCK,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to include the theft of goats and any species farmed for household or commercial use as constituting the offense of theft of livestock.
Your Committee received testimony in favor of this measure from the Chairperson of the Board of Agriculture.
Your Committee finds that the theft of goats and other livestock results in significant economic losses for those raising livestock not currently covered by Hawaii's theft laws.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2481, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
BRIAN KANNO, Chair
