STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2522
RE: S.B. No. 3166
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Energy, Economic Development, and Tourism, to which was referred S.B. No. 3166 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE STADIUM AUTHORITY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to add two more members to the Stadium Authority Board that shall consist of a resident of Aiea or Halawa and a resident of Alii Plantation, Crosspointe, or Foster Village.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Stadium Authority Board.
Your Committee finds that the Stadium Authority is responsible to maintain, operate, and manage the stadium and its attached facilities. Under existing law, the Stadium Authority Board consists of nine members who are appointed by the Governor. Your Committee further finds that there needs to be more input on decisions that come before the Stadium Authority Board from residents who are most affected by the use of the stadium. This measure will ensure that input from the public is taken into consideration on any decision affecting the stadium by including two extra members on the Stadium Authority Board from residential locations near the stadium.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Energy, Economic Development, and Tourism that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 3166, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 3166, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Energy, Economic Development, and Tourism,
GLENN WAKAI, Chair
