RE: H.R. No. 175
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health & Human Services, to which was referred H.R. No. 175 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH TO COMPILE STUDIES AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STATE AND COUNTY LEGISLATION TO BEST PROTECT RESIDENTS FROM NOISE POLLUTION IN THE STATE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Department of Health to compile information from studies on noise pollution conducted by national and international agencies, and report its findings and recommendations to the Legislature so that policymakers may make an informed decision on how to best protect the State's residents from noise pollution due to the variety of negative health outcomes that result from unwanted or harmful outdoor, environmental noise created by human activities.
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 concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 175 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health & Human Services,
JOHN M. MIZUNO, Chair
