STAND. COM. REP. NO. 519
RE: H.B. No. 753
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. 753, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SCHOOL IMPACT FEES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands. Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Education and Tax Foundation of Hawaii.
Your Committee finds that excluding housing developed by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands from school impact fees could result in more homes being developed for the beneficiaries of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands and help get beneficiaries off the wait list and into housing.
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. 753, H.D. 1, and recommends that it 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
