STAND. COM. REP. NO. 776
RE: H.B. No. 1339
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. 1339 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO IMPEACHMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the process by which a Governor or Lieutenant Governor may be removed from office should be clearly articulated and transparent. Your Committee further finds that it is prudent for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Legislature to know the ground rules for such a process before any specific circumstance arises that creates an immediate need for it.
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. 1339 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
