STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1411

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: H.B. No. 499

H.D. 1

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Thirtieth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2019

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental, and Military Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 499, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FIREWORKS LABELING,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose and intent of this measure is to correct labeling dimensions for display fireworks, articles pyrotechnic, and aerial devices.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the State Fire Council, County of Hawaii Fire Department, County of Maui Fire Department, and County of Kauai Fire Department.

 

Your Committee finds that labeling dimensions for display fireworks, articles pyrotechnic, and aerial devices originally codified into existing law were incorrect and need clarification. Your Committee further finds that this measure corrects the labeling requirement dimensions to conform with industry standard code.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental, and Military Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 499, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental, and Military Affairs,
