STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1053-20
RE: S.B. No. 3008
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection, to which was referred S.B. No. 3008, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MEASUREMENT STANDARDS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that hydrogen, as a renewable fuel, offers great promise for Hawaii. Your Committee further finds that the existing measurement standards law implies that hydrogen must be sold on the basis of measure, yet the State currently does not have a means to measure and certify hydrogen dispensers. This measure will assist the State in utilizing other forms of renewable fuels by explicitly exempting hydrogen from measurement standards relating to fuel.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing its effective date to July 1, 2050, to encourage further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 3008, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 3008, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection,
NICOLE E. LOWEN, Chair
