STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2100
RE: S.B. No. 2912
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Agriculture, to which was referred S.B. No. 2912 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION FOR AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to make an appropriation to promote and market major aquaculture, algae, marine products, and research in biotechnology.
Your Committee received testimony in favor of this measure from the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority and an individual.
Your Committee finds that this measure will assist in providing answers and solutions to current environmental challenges to our ocean and land uses before human interaction overwhelms our State's unique and pristine resources.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Agriculture that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2912 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Agriculture,
JAN YAGI BUEN, Chair
