STAND. COM. REP. NO. 67

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 1111

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2017

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Housing, to which was referred S.B. No. 1111 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII PUBLIC HOUSING AUTHORITY,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose and intent of this measure is to appropriate monies for the Hawaii Public Housing Authority to hire an additional security guard at Kalihi Valley Homes.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Hawaii Public Housing Authority. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from Hoomana Pono, LLC.

 

Your Committee finds that one of the Hawaii Public Housing Authority's greatest concerns and priorities is the safety and well-being of the tenants and staff of Hawaii's public housing projects. Your Committee further finds that security measures currently in place at Kalihi Valley Homes are not sufficient to provide a safe and secure living environment for residents. This measure will enable the Hawaii Public Housing Authority to provide additional security at Kalihi Valley Homes.

 

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 S.B. No. 1111 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.

 

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