STAND. COM. REP. NO. 587
RE: H.B. No. 288
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. 288 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TRANSPORTATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that although existing law prohibits vehicles owners from installing mufflers that increase the noise of their vehicle, the penalties are minimal and do little to deter violators. Your Committee finds that the increases in fines proposed by this measure will serve as a stronger deterrent.
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. 288, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 288, 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
