STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3235

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

                  

 

RE:    S.C.R. No. 17

 

 

 

Honorable Donna Mercado Kim

President of the Senate

Twenty-Seventh State Legislature

Regular Session of 2014

State of Hawaii

 

Madam:

 

     Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 17 entitled:

 

"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF A TERM, NON-EXCLUSIVE EASEMENT COVERING PORTION OF STATE SUBMERGED LANDS AT LAIE, KOOLAULOA, OAHU, FOR THE MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR OF THE EXISTING REVETMENT AND STEPS, AND FOR USE, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR OF THE EXISTING IMPROVEMENTS CONSTRUCTED THEREON,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources to issue a term, non-exclusive easement covering certain submerged lands.

 

     Specifically, the measure authorizes an easement for state submerged lands fronting the property identified as Tax Map Key: (1) 5-5-002: seaward of 034, at Laie, Koolauloa, Oahu, for the maintenance and repair of the existing revetment and steps, and for use, maintenance, and repair of the existing improvements constructed thereon.

 

     Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

 

     Your Committee finds that section 171-53, Hawaii Revised Statutes, requires the Board of Land and Natural Resources to obtain the prior authorization of the Legislature by concurrent resolution in order to issue the easement.  Your Committee further finds that authorizing the issuance of the easement for the specified state submerged lands would facilitate the use, maintenance, and repair of the specified revetment and steps.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 17 and recommends its adoption.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
