STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3842
RE: H.C.R. No. 214
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
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 PUULOA 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 Puuloa Month.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from Hui O Hoohonua, Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, and one individual.
Your Committee finds that Puuloa is the native Hawaiian name for the area that includes present-day Pearl Harbor. The oldest human settlements on Oahu are in the Puuloa area, and many sites within Puuloa hold great significance in Hawaiian history and culture. This measure acknowledges the importance of Puuloa 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 Puuloa 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,
BRIAN T. TANIGUCHI, Chair
