STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1805
RE: S.B. No. 651
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 S.B. No. 651, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, 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 the Department of Transportation, one member of the Maui County Council, and one individual. Your Committee received testimony in opposition to this measure from one individual.
Your Committee finds that Elmer Franklin Cravalho served as the first speaker of the State House of Representatives following statehood and the first mayor of Maui County from 1969 to 1979. Your Committee further finds that he is credited for much of Maui's development, and in particular, development of a waterline from Wailuku to Wailea, which enabled the development of Kihei. Your Committee believes that Mayor Elmer F. Cravalho has a clear connection to Maui's history and should be remembered for his civil service by renaming the Kahului Airport Access Road the Mayor Elmer F. Cravalho Way in his honor.
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 S.B. No. 651, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, 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
