RE: S.B. No. 3176
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. 3176, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to provide that any authorization by a county director of finance for an electronic method of motor vehicle registration, including the acceptance of any supplemental documents in electronic form, shall extend to all types of motor vehicles and intermodal equipment.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from Matson, Inc.; Servco Pacific, Inc.; and Hawaii Automobile Dealers' Association. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from one individual.
Your Committee finds that currently, only personal motor vehicle registration documents may be submitted electronically, while all other vehicles require submission of paper documents. This measure allows all vehicle registration documents to be submitted electronically.
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. 3176, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
