begs leave to report as follows:
The Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation, Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority, and two individuals testified in support of this measure.

Your Committee has amended this measure by changing its effective date to January 1, 2050, to further continued discussion on this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2192, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2192, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
