STAND. COM. REP. NO. 858
RE: H.B. No. 1030
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 1030, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE AQUATIC LIFE AND WILDLIFE ADVISORY COMMITTEES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Repeal the Aquatic Life and Wildlife Advisory Committees under section 197-4, Hawaii Revised Statutes; and
(2) Make conforming amendments to sections 197-1 and 197-2, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Your Committee finds that the Department of Land and Natural Resources, after thorough review and scrutiny, has determined that the Aquatic Life and Wildlife Advisory Committees have rarely convened or been needed, and as such, are outdated and that the Department remains able to administratively convene a similar advisory committee if it deems it to be necessary.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1030, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1030, H.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
