Regular Session of 2020

Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 3080 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE JUDICIARY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Judiciary, Legal Aid Society of Hawai‘i, and Hawai‘i Access to Justice Commission. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from one individual.
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT BUDGET
Your Committee finds that capital improvement project requirements remain an item of concern as the Judiciary's infrastructure continues to age and deteriorate, and as the population served and services provided by the Judiciary keep expanding. Your Committee approves funding to upgrade and modernize the fire alarm system and elevators of Ka‘ahumanu Hale in the First Circuit, and renovation of and security improvements to the Ka‘ahumanu Hale Sheriff Station. Your Committee also approves the Judiciary's request for funding for parking structure improvements to the Hoapili Hale in the Second Circuit and repairs to damages at the Pu‘uhonua Kaulike in the Fifth Circuit. Your Committee additionally approves of funding for improvements to Judiciary facilities statewide.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Correcting the total amount of capital improvement project funding for FY 2019-2021 to reflect an increase of $27,700,000; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments to insert missing language and conforming language for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
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. 3080, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 3080, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
