RE: H.B. No. 1800

H.D. 1

 

 

 

 

Honorable Scott K. Saiki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2018

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 1800, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLE TIRES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to create better incentives for tire recycling and to offset some of the expenses of used tire cleanup by authorizing each county, at its discretion, to establish a requirement for customers to provide an equal number of used motor vehicle tires to a tire retailer as the number of new motor vehicle tires purchased or pay a fee that shall be refundable upon provision of the appropriate number of used tires.

 

The Department of Health, Sierra Club of Hawaii, and many concerned individuals supported this measure. The Hawaii Automobile Dealers' Association opposed this measure. A concerned individual provided comments.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1800, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.

 

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