STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1157
RE: H.R. No. 75
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.R. No. 75 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO ESTABLISH A TASK FORCE TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE PROPER IDENTIFICATION AND DISPOSAL OF ABANDONED AND DERELICT VEHICLES LEFT ON THE STATE'S HIGHWAYS AND CITY AND COUNTY ROADWAYS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Department of Transportation to establish a task force to make recommendations on the proper identification and disposal of abandoned and derelict vehicles in the State.
Your Committee finds that in 2018, more than 3,000 abandoned and derelict vehicles were removed from the streets in the City and County of Honolulu, an increase of over fifty percent from 2017. Your Committee believes that the increase in abandoned and derelict vehicles in the State necessitates the creation of a task force to look at existing laws regarding abandoned and derelict vehicles to assist in finding more efficient methods of disposal, thereby improving the quality of life for residents and visitors of the State.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 75 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
HENRY J.C. AQUINO, Chair
