STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3131
RE: S.B. No. 2105
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2105 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO HIGHWAY SAFETY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize the examiner of drivers to accept driver's license renewal applications from civilian employees and contractors of the federal Department of Defense more than six months prior to the date of expiration under certain conditions.
Your Committee received no testimony for this measure.
Your Committee finds that under existing procedures, civilian employees and contractors of the federal Department of Defense may renew their REAL ID driver's license within the 6‑month window via mail; however, this option is not available for renewal of non-REAL ID driver's licenses. Because these federal employees and contractor's jobs take them overseas for long periods of time, this measure allows them to renew their driver's license beforehand.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2105 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
