STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3842

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

                  

 

RE:    H.C.R. No. 214

       H.D. 1

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2018

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

     Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 214, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE THIRTY-DAY PERIOD FROM THE LAST SATURDAY IN SEPTEMBER TO THE LAST SUNDAY IN OCTOBER AS MALAMA PU‘ULOA MONTH,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose and intent of this measure is to recognize the thirty-day period from the last Saturday in September to the last Sunday in October as Malama Pu‘uloa Month.

 

     Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from Hui O Ho‘ohonua, O‘ahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i, and one individual.

 

     Your Committee finds that Pu‘uloa is the native Hawaiian name for the area that includes present-day Pearl Harbor.  The oldest human settlements on O‘ahu are in the Pu‘uloa area, and many sites within Pu‘uloa hold great significance in Hawaiian history and culture.  This measure acknowledges the importance of Pu‘uloa to the people, history, and culture of Hawaii by recognizing the period from the last Saturday in September to the last Sunday in October as Malama Pu‘uloa Month.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 214, H.D. 1, and recommends its adoption.

 

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