STAND. COM. REP. NO. 16-20
RE: H.B. No. 2050
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services & Homelessness, to which was referred H.B. No. 2050 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDERS, PROTECTIVE ORDERS, AND INJUNCTIONS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify that the effective period of a temporary restraining order, protective order, or injunction for a minor may extend to a reasonable date after the minor has reached the age of eighteen.
Your Committee finds that temporary restraining orders, protective orders, and injunctions against harassment for a minor typically expire when the minor reaches the age of eighteen. This measure eliminates the automatic termination of the order or injunction and permits the extension of the order's or injunction's effective period.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to December 31, 2059, to facilitate further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services & Homelessness that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2050, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2050, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services & Homelessness,
JOY A. SAN BUENAVENTURA, Chair
