Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2765, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO REGISTRATION OF DIVORCES AND ANNULMENTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to streamline the process of registering divorces and annulments occurring in the State by:
(1) Allowing the Department of Health (DOH) to continue to register divorces and annulments that are granted up through December 31, 2002, by the Family Court; and
(2) Eliminating the requirement to register divorces and annulments with the DOH after December 31, 2002.
DOH submitted testimony in support of this bill. The Judiciary submitted comments on this bill.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2765, S.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
DWIGHT Y. TAKAMINE, Chair
