STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1106
RE: H.B. No. 513
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Government Operations, to which was referred H.B. No. 513 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE STATE CAPITOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to repeal the State Capitol Management Committee, which oversees the financing, operations, and maintenance of the State Capitol grounds and facilities.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Accounting and General Services and one individual.
Your Committee finds that it is the responsibility of the Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) to operate and maintain the State Capitol grounds and facilities. According to testimony received by your Committee, the last meeting of the State Capitol Management Committee with minutes was in September 2018. Your Committee recognizes that over the past year during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, DAGS continued to operate and maintain the State Capitol through on-ongoing projects and operations that include repainting, renovations, bird dropping mitigation, soffit replacement, new security cameras/equipment, re-carpeting, dead bolt lock installations, and pool leak mitigation.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Government Operations that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 513, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Government Operations,
SHARON MORIWAKI, Chair
