STAND. COM. REP. NO. 802
RE: S.B. No. 1305
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 S.B. No. 1305 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING AND GENERAL SERVICES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to require the Department of Accounting and General Services to establish and manage automotive support for work-related employee travel, including a program in which state employees are permitted to drive personal vehicles to conduct official business and be compensated for costs based on mileage.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Accounting and General Services.
Your Committee finds that allowing state employees to use the employees' personal vehicles to conduct official business will help to improve efficiency and minimize the size of the State's motor pool.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical nonsubstantive changes for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
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 is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1305, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1305, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
