STAND. COM. REP. NO. 820
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 Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, 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 one member of the Maui Council and four individuals. Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee finds that Mayor Elmer F. Cravalho was a prominent and influential figure in Maui's history. Mayor Cravalho held various leadership positions in the public and private sectors, 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. Mayor Cravalho is credited for much of Maui's development, including the waterline from Wailuku to Wailea, which enabled the development of Kihei. This measure will honor Mayor Cravalho's dedication to civil service and the people of Maui by renaming the Kahului Airport Access Road the Mayor Elmer F. Cravalho Way.
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. 775 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
