RE: S.B. No. 2786
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2786, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HOISTING MACHINE OPERATORS ADVISORY BOARD,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to:
(1) Place the Hoisting Machine Operators Advisory Board (Board) within the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations for administrative purposes to avoid possible constitutional challenges of the Board's actions; and
(2) Place the half-time executive director position under the control of the Board, and excludes this position from civil service.
The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations testified in support of this bill.
Your Committee has amended this bill by:
(1) Restoring the original reference to chapter 77, Hawaii Revised Statutes, with respect to the half-time position; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of style and clarity.
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. 2786, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2786, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
DWIGHT Y. TAKAMINE, Chair
