Honorable Donna Mercado Kim

President of the Senate

Regular Session of 2014

State of Hawaii

 

Sir and Madam:

 

     Your Committee on Conference on the disagreeing vote of the House of Representatives to the amendments proposed by the Senate in H.B. No. 737, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SPECIAL PURPOSE REVENUE BONDS TO ASSIST AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISES,"

 

having met, and after full and free discussion, has agreed to recommend and does recommend to the respective Houses the final passage of this bill in an amended form.

 

     The purpose of this measure is to statutorily implement a proposed constitutional amendment that authorizes the State to issue special purpose revenue bonds and use the bond proceeds to assist agricultural enterprises, rather than only agricultural enterprises serving important agricultural lands.

 

     Your Committee on Conference has amended this measure by changing its effective date to July 1, 2014 and upon ratification of the necessary constitutional amendments by the voters.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the managers of your Committee on Conference that is attached to this report, your Committee on Conference is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 737, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Final Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 737, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, C.D. 1.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the managers:

 

ON THE PART OF THE SENATE

 

ON THE PART OF THE HOUSE
