STAND. COM. REP. NO. 391
RE: H.B. No. 244
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. 244 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO LAND RECORDATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify the data requirements for land recordation by the Bureau of Conveyances, on land other than fee simple time share interests deregistered by the Land Court, to include a plan of the parcel or parcels sought to be deregistered that includes a map and description prepared by a licensed professional surveyor.
Your Committee finds that currently there are no clear standards or requirements for the mapping or describing of certain lands that were voluntarily deregistered. This measure will provide clarity on the data requirements for land recordation by the bureau of conveyances, on land other than fee simple time share interests deregistered by the land court.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the effective date to July 1, 3021, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) 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. 244, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 244, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
