RE: H.C.R. No. 44
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 44, S.D. 1, entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING UNITED STATES PRESIDENT JOSEPH R. BIDEN, JR. AND THE ASIA‑PACIFIC ECONOMIC COOPERATION TO HOLD THE 2023 ASIA‑PACIFIC ECONOMIC COOPERATION SUMMIT IN THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU, STATE OF HAWAII,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to urge President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation to hold the 2023 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in the City and County of Honolulu.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
Your Committee finds that holding the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Honolulu would bring numerous attendees, support staff, and accompanying media to the State and help boost the economy as the State works to recover from the effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 44, S.D. 1, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
