State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water, Land, & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 653 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO STATE PARTITIONS,"

The purpose of this measure is to require that the Land Court prioritize all actions for partition or easement filed by the State over all other applications filed so that the State's applications may be quickly heard and determined.
