RE: H.B. No. 1352
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water & Land, to which was referred H.B. No. 1352, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SURPLUS MILITARY LAND,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) An inventory of federally controlled state lands, to be prepared by the Department of Land and Natural Resources;
(2) Any known contaminants or environmental hazards on the inventoried lands based on past environmental studies, to be prepared by the Department of Health in consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency;
(3) Input from departments and agencies on proposed alternative uses for the lands; and
(4) Its findings and recommendations, including any proposed legislation, based on the information above.
Your Committee finds that this measure directs concrete steps to be taken toward compiling the information needed as a precursor to remediation and restoration efforts and alternative uses for federally controlled state lands.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1352, H.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water & Land,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
