STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2718
RE: S.C.R. No. 56
Honorable Colleen Hanabusa
President of the Senate
Twenty-Fifth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2010
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 56 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION APPROVING THE SALE OF THE FEE INTEREST IN 2949 ALA ILIMA STREET #201, HONOLULU, HAWAII,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to approve the sale of the fee interest in 2949 Ala Ilima Street #201 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Testimony in support of the measure was submitted by one state agency and one individual. One state agency submitted comments. Written testimony presented to the Committee may be reviewed on the Legislature's website.
Your Committee finds that this property is a unit in the Puana Malu condominiums, acquired in 1975 as part of a State housing program. The units were sold in leasehold interest to owner-occupiers, who were given the opportunity to purchase the fee simple interest. To date, of the twenty-one units originally sold in leasehold, nineteen owner-occupiers have purchased the underlying fee simple interest.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Inserting a provision describing the history of the subject property;
(2) Clarifying that there are no further development plans for this property;
(3) Including a provision specifying that a copy of the measure was submitted to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the date of the submission, in accordance with section 171-64.7, Hawaii Revised Statutes; and
(4) Making technical, nonsubstantive changes for the purposes of style and clarity.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 56, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means, in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 56, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs,
CLAYTON HEE, Chair
