STAND. COM. REP. NO. 39
RE: H.B. No. 186
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. 186 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE UNIFORM TRUST CODE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Enact the 2018 Uniform Trust Code with appropriate amendments to reflect Hawaii law and practice; and
(2) Repeal the Uniform Trustees' Powers Act, Uniform Prudent Investor Act, and laws regarding trust administration under the Uniform Probate Code.
Your Committee finds that this measure will update Hawaii statutes relating to trusts and bring them under one comprehensive umbrella, which will significantly reduce the time, complexity, and expense of trust proceedings.
Your Committee has amended this measure by 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 Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 186, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 186, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
