Honorable Joseph M. Souki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2017
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Economic Development & Business, to which was referred S.B. No. 1306, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND TOURISM,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to establish within the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism an Office of Public-Private Partnership to increase economic development in the State through collaboration between the public and private sectors.
Upon further consideration, your Committee has amended this measure by deleting its contents and inserting the substantive provisions of H.B. No. 627 H.D. 2, which addresses the issues relating to the administration of public-private partnerships and
was previously heard in the House earlier this session. As amended, this measure:
(1) Authorizes and funds the position of State Public-Private Partnership Coordinator under the Director of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism to manage all private-public partnerships entered into by the State and manage all associated contracts, proposals, and negotiations;
(2) Exempts public-private partnerships entered into by the Hawaii Public Housing Authority; and
(3) Takes effect on July 1, 2038.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Economic Development & Business that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1306, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1306, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Economic Development & Business,
