STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1187
RE: S.B. No. 1277
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 1277, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to prohibit the initial registration of motor carrier vehicles by any motor carrier that is in violation of certain federal or North American motor carrier safety regulations and the laws compatible with those regulations.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee finds that the Department of Transportation has indicated that the amendments made by this measure will establish the State as "PRISM Equivalent" under the federal Performance Registration Information Systems Management program and related federal requirements and thus enable the State to continue receiving certain federal grant funding.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Correcting a reference to 49 Code of Federal Regulations section 392.5;
(2) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion on the measure; and
(3) Making technical nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1277, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1277, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
