RE: H.C.R. No. 96
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Sixth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2012
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 96 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING HAWAIIAN NATIONALS AS A POPULATION RESIDING LAWFULLY IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) An authentic population residing lawfully in the Hawaiian Islands; and
(2) The authentic heirs, beneficiaries, and body politic of the Hawaiian Kingdom, which provides Hawaiian Nationals the right to organize and restore their national government of, by, and for the people of the Hawaiian Islands.
This measure also urges the State to uphold the laws regarding nationality-based discrimination, and to encourage the courts and law enforcement agencies in the State to cease all nationality-based harassment and prosecution of Hawaiian Nationals.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 96 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Hawaiian Affairs,
FAYE HANOHANO, Chair
