STAND. COM. REP. NO. 478-20
RE: H.B. No. 2276
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Agriculture, to which was referred H.B. No. 2276 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE ANIMAL INDUSTRY SPECIAL FUND,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the Fund was
established to receive monies from the use or rental of Animal Industry Division
properties or facilities and utilize them to assist with the Division's operating
expenditures. The State Veterinary Laboratory
is in the Animal Industry Division; however, its revenues are not deposited
into to the Fund. Allowing the Animal Industry
Division to deposit fees generated by the State Veterinary Laboratory into the
Fund will assist the Division with its operations.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2150, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Agriculture that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2276, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2276, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Agriculture,
RICHARD P. CREAGAN, Chair
