Sir:

 

Your Committee on Health & Human Services, to which was referred H.B. No. 2573, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CESSPOOLS,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to require that the existence of any cesspool on real property be considered a material fact, and be included in a seller's disclosure statement if disclosure of the existence of a cesspool on real property is determined to be mandatory under Hawaii's Mandatory Seller Disclosures in Real Estate Transactions law.

 

The Department of Health and several concerned individuals supported this measure. The Hawaii Association of REALTORS provided comments.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to July 1, 3000, to encourage further discussion.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health & Human Services that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2573, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2573, H.D. 2.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health & Human Services,
