Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 2337, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO WASTE MANAGEMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to:
(1) Require that all state and county agency contractors that dispose of liquid or solid waste provide a receipt to the contracting agency that the waste was received and disposed of at a licensed facility or an appropriate farm or construction site before full payment is made for those contractual services;
(2) Allow for partial payment to be made to all state and county agency contractors that dispose of liquid or solid waste without a receipt and prior to any dumping of waste; and
(3) Make alteration or falsification of receipts by state and county agency contractors that dispose of liquid or solid waste a misdemeanor offense.
The Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i and Larry Jefts Farms, LLC., supported this measure. The Department of Accounting and General Services, Department of Health, Alexander & Baldwin, and Grace Pacific LLC opposed this measure. The General Contractors Association of Hawaii offered comments.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2337, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
