STAND. COM. REP. NO. 974
RE: H.C.R. No. 49
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water & Land, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 49 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF A LEASE COVERING STATE SUBMERGED LANDS AT PIER 27 IN HONOLULU HARBOR, OAHU, TO ATLANTIS SUBMARINES HAWAII, LLC,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the Department of Transportation relocated Atlantis Submarines Hawaii, LLC, from Pier 41 in Honolulu Harbor to Pier 27 during August 2014 to make way for the development of the Kapalama Container Terminal, a critical modernization project identified by the Legislature in the Harbors Modernization Plan under Act 200, Session Laws of Hawaii 2008. Your Committee finds that this measure is necessary to grant legislative authorization for the Department of Transportation, with the prior approval of the Board of Land and Natural Resources, to enter into a lease with Atlantis Submarines Hawaii, LLC, that will include the fast lands at Pier 27 and state submerged lands fronting the property bound by Pier 27.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 49, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 49, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water & Land,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
