STAND. COM. REP. NO. 739
RE: H.B. No. 1031
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. 1031 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE HAWAII HISTORIC PLACES REVIEW BOARD,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the Hawaii Historic Places Review Board is tasked, among other things, with ordering and entering historic properties into the Hawaii Register of Historic Places, recommending the nomination of historic properties to the National Register of Historic Places, and reviewing the State Historic Preservation Plan. However, it has become increasingly more difficult to find qualified persons to fill the Hawaii Historic Places Review Board. This measure will address the recruitment issues of the Board, while allowing it to continue to fulfill its duties under state and federal law.
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. 1031 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
