STAND. COM. REP. NO. 855
RE: S.B. No. 411
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. 411, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TRANSPORTATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to provide that certain exemptions from requirements to obtain certain certificates of inspection, registration, and licensing extend to marine terminal equipment used near neighbor island harbors.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from Matson Navigation.
Your Committee finds that extending the current marine terminal equipment exemptions to the neighbor islands will allow shipping companies on neighbor islands to move marine terminal equipment without having to first secure permits or waivers from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to facilitate further discussion on the measure; and
(2) Making technical nonsubstantive changes for the 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. 411, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 411, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
