STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2165

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 2440

 

 

 

Honorable Colleen Hanabusa

President of the Senate

Twenty-Fifth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2010

State of Hawaii

 

Madam:

 

Your Committee on Transportation, International and Intergovernmental Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 2440 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE BOARDS OF WATER SUPPLY,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to require the county treasurer or other county authorized signatory to disburse moneys of the board of water supply.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Kauai Board of Water Supply. Written testimony presented to the Committee may be reviewed on the Legislature's website.

 

This measure also authorizes the manager and chief engineer of the board of water supply to disburse funds in accordance with duties prescribed by the board of water supply.

 

According to testimony, this measure is intended for the County of Kauai, where delegation of the authority by the Department of Water to sign vouchers requires that state statutes be amended.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation, International and Intergovernmental Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2440 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 Transportation, International and Intergovernmental Affairs,
