STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3691
RE: H.B. No. 2748
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. 2748, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO HOUSING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to require, and appropriate funds to, the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation to study housing waitlists in the State and in each county to gain a better understanding of the current and future demand for and supply of affordable housing suitable for individuals with access and functional needs.
Your Committee did not receive any written comments on this measure.
Your Committee finds that a lack of data about the housing issues faced by individuals with access and functional needs hinders the State's ability to formulate strategies to assist these individuals to secure suitable and affordable housing.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making a technical nonsubstantive change for the purpose of style.
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. 2748, H.D. 2, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2748, H.D. 2, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
