STAND. COM. REP. NO.1375-02
RE: S.C.R. No. 101
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 101, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCES TO ADDRESS ENERGY NEEDS ON THE ISLAND OF KAHO`OLAWE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Kaho`olawe Island Reserve Commission to convene a task force to develop a plan for the utilization of alternative energy resources to address the current and future energy needs of the island of Kaho`olawe.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Kaho`olawe Island Reserve Commission and the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism.
Your Committee finds that an analysis of alternative energy resources is needed because the Kaho`olawe Island Reserve Commission expects to discontinue reliance on petroleum products to generate electricity on Kaho`olawe. Your Committee further finds it appropriate to provide for an interim and final report to allow sufficient time for study.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 101, S.D. 1, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary and Hawaiian Affairs,
ERIC G. HAMAKAWA, Chair
