STAND. COM. REP. NO. 278
RE: H.B. No. 1058
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.B. No. 1058 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation, Department of Customer Services of the City and County of Honolulu, and Hawaii Transportation Association.
Your Committee finds that some state programs relating to motor carrier safety are funded through federal grants, such as the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program. Your Committee further finds that in 2015, compliance with the Performance Registration Information Systems Management Program, which identifies motor carrier vehicles that are under a federal out‑of‑service order due to deficiencies found in a compliance review inspection, was made mandatory in order to continue receiving federal grant monies. This measure will allow the State to qualify under federal law and continue to receive grant money necessary for motor carrier safety programs.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing its effective date to July 1, 2050, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1058, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1058, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
HENRY J.C. AQUINO, Chair
