STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1605
RE: S.C.R. No. 83
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water and Land, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 83 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES TO CLEAN UP ALL LITTER ON THE PARCEL OF STATE LANDS, IDENTIFIED AS TAX MAP KEY (3) 7-4-08: 21, LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF QUEEN KAAHUMANU HIGHWAY AND PALANI ROAD,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to request the Department of Land and Natural Resources to clean up all litter on the parcel of state lands identified as Tax Map Key: v(3) 7-4-008:021 (parcel 21) located at the intersection of Queen Kaahumanu Highway and Palani Road in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from one individual. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Your Committee finds that the vacant parcel 21 at the intersection of Queen Kaahumanu Highway and Palani Road in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, has become a dumping ground for furniture, appliances, household items, and general rubbish. Your Committee further finds that parcel 21 is not under the jurisdiction of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, but rather the Department of Transportation, for care and maintenance.
Your Committee has therefore amended this measure by:
(1) Requesting the Department of Transportation, rather than the Department of Land and Natural Resources, to clean up parcel 21;
(2) Amending its title accordingly; and
(3) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water and Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 83, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means, in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 83, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water and Land,
KAIALI'I KAHELE, Chair
