STAND. COM. REP. NO. 338

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

, 2021

 

RE: H.B. No. 156

 

 

 

 

Honorable Scott K. Saiki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Thirty-First State Legislature

Regular Session of 2021

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Agriculture, to which was referred H.B. No. 156 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ANIMAL CONTROL SERVICES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to repeal the requirement that the County of Kauai contract solely with the Kauai Humane Society.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from one member of the Kauai County Council and Animal Rights Hawaii.

 

Your Committee finds that repealing the statutory requirement for the County of Kauai to contract solely with the Kauai Humane Society will enable the County of Kauai to contract with other service providers, like all other counties in the State.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Agriculture that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 156 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Agriculture,
