STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1862
RE: H.B. No. 499
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health, 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, or aerial devices.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the State Fire Council, Honolulu Fire Department, County of Hawai‘i Fire Department, Kaua‘i Fire Department, and one individual.
Your Committee finds that labeling dimensions for display fireworks, articles pyrotechnic, and aerial devices originally codified into existing law are incorrect and need clarification. This measure corrects the labeling requirement dimensions, which will allow labels to be placed on smaller-sized pyrotechnic devices, and conforms with industry standard code.
Your Committee has amended this measure by inserting an effective date of July 1, 2019.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 499, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 499, H.D. 1, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health,
ROSALYN H. BAKER, Chair
