STAND. COM. REP. NO. 274
RE: H.B. No. 1059
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. 1059 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TRANSPORTATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to repeal certain obsolete or unnecessary statutes, which include the Transportation Improvement Special Fund, Kewalo Basin and Honolulu Harbor use permits, and fireboat maintenance requirements.
Your Committee finds that there are certain provisions in the Hawaii Revised Statutes relating to the Department of Transportation that are either obsolete or no longer necessary. This includes the Transportation Improvement Special Fund, which currently has no funds remaining because all improvement projects are completed, and the Kewalo Basin and Honolulu Harbor use permits, which are no longer under the purview of the Department of Transportation. In addition, the Department of Transportation no longer owns any fireboats, making any statutory language relating to this unnecessary. This measure will act as a housekeeping measure by deleting unnecessary provisions in statute.
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. 1059 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
HENRY J.C. AQUINO, Chair
