Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 381, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO AGRICULTURAL LANDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to require the Office of Planning, in consultation with the Land Use Commission, Real Estate Commission, and City and County of Honolulu Department of Planning and Permitting, to study the land subdivision and condominium property regime laws as those laws relate to agricultural land on Oahu, including how the laws interact with City and County of Honolulu zoning ordinances, to:
(1) Determine any potential ambiguities, omissions, or other deficiencies through which a landowner might develop land contrary to the legislative intent of those laws; and
(2) Propose legislation to remedy any deficiencies.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 381, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
