RE: S.B. No. 2804
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. 2804 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SUBLEASING OF PUBLIC LANDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to attract viable tenants by providing the Board of Land and Natural Resources (Board) more flexibility in leasing public lands. Specifically, this measure authorizes the Board to waive the requirement to obtain Board consent for subleases under public land leases.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources supported this measure.
Your Committee has amended this bill to:
(1) Ensure that the provision relating to the lease of public lands for piers, section 171-36(a)(9), Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), will be reenacted as provided by Act 261, Session Laws of Hawaii 2000 (Act 261);
(2) Retain technical amendments to section 171-36(a), HRS, made by Act 261; and
(3) Make other technical, nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity and style.
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. 2804, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2804, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
DWIGHT Y. TAKAMINE, Chair
