STAND. COM. REP. NO. 276
RE: H.B. No. 775
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.B. No. 775 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO RENAMING KAHULUI AIRPORT ACCESS ROAD,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation, Mayor of the County of Maui, one member with the Maui County Council, and six individuals. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from four individuals.
Your Committee finds that Mayor Elmer Cravalho is known as an iconic figure throughout the County of Maui and around the State for his work in creating a robust economy in tourism and high technology. Mayor Cravalho held various leadership positions in the public and private sectors within the County of Maui, having served as the first Speaker of the House of Representatives from 1959 to 1967 and then the first Mayor of Maui until July 24, 1979. Your Committee believes that naming the Kahului Airport Access Road after Mayor Cravalho is an appropriate way to recognize the legacy of Mayor Cravalho in the County of Maui.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 775 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
HENRY J.C. AQUINO, Chair
