RE: S.B. No. 42
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 42 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO HAWAIIAN AFFAIRS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to amend the law relating to Hawaiian affairs.
Prior to the hearing on this measure, your Committee posted and made available for public review a proposed S.D. 1, which amends this measure by deleting its contents and replacing it with language to prohibit the attorney general from investigating nonprofit organizations for exercising their rights granted under the Constitution or state constitution, with exceptions.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Adopting the proposed S.D. 1; and
(2) 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 Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 42, as amended herein, and recommends that it be recommitted to your Committee on Hawaiian Affairs, in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 42, S.D. 1, for further consideration.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Hawaiian Affairs,
MAILE S.L. SHIMABUKURO, Chair
