STAND. COM. REP. NO. 269
RE: S.B. No. 1378
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred S.B. No. 1378 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TRANSPORTATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize owners of a shipping container chassis to keep a duplicate copy of the certificate of registration within the shipping container chassis and the original certificate of registration at their principal place of business.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Hawaii Transportation Association and Matson.
Your Committee finds that a shipping container chassis is a wheeled frame that is designed to carry a shipping container over the road. Currently, owners of shipping container chassis must keep the original copy of the registration within the chassis. Your Committee further finds that a shipping container chassis may endure harsh conditions and does not have the necessary compartments to properly and safely store an original registration certificate. This measure would allow owners of a shipping container chassis to safely keep the original registration in their place of business for inspection, if needed.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1378 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 Transportation,
LORRAINE R. INOUYE, Chair
