Honorable Joseph M. Souki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2017

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 192, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO HOMEOWNERS' ASSOCIATIONS,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to increase consumer protections for planned community associations by expanding the definition of "association" under the Planned Community Associations law to include homeowners' associations.

 

Hui Oiaio and several individuals supported this measure. The Community Association Institute Legislative Action Committee provided comments.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by clarifying the definition of "association" to mean a homeowners' association with voting membership of ten or more parcel owners or their proxies, or a combination thereof.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 192, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 192, H.D. 2.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
