RE: H.B. No. 2356
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Housing, to which was referred H.B. No. 2356 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII PUBLIC HOUSING AUTHORITY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to align the smoking prohibition statute of the Hawaii Public Housing Authority with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's "smoke-free" policy.
The Hawaii Public Housing Authority, Department of Health, Hawai‘i Public Health Institute, and several concerned individuals testified in support of this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2356 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Housing,
TOM BROWER, Chair
