STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3549
RE: H.B. No. 1938
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 1938, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SCHOOL BUSES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to increase the fine from not more than $500 to not more than $1,000 for passing or overtaking a school bus that is stopped on a state highway with its visual signals on.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Education.
Your Committee finds that increasing the fine for passing or overtaking a school bus that is stopped on a state highway with its visual signals on will reduce these violations and improve student safety.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date from July 1, 2050, to upon approval.
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 is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1938, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1938, H.D. 1, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
