The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to request the Legislative Reference Bureau (LRB) to study the level and scope of private sector spending related to advertising and promotion of Hawaii as a visitor destination. Specifically, this measure:
(1) Requires that information be reported by sectors of the industry in order to preserve the confidentiality of the financial information;

The DBEDT supported this measure. The HTA supported the intent of this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Tourism and Culture that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 34, S.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Legislative Management.
