STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1514
RE: S.C.R. No. 141
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.C.R. No. 141, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF A TERM, NON-EXCLUSIVE EASEMENT COVERING PORTIONS OF STATE SUBMERGED LANDS AT WAILEA, MAUI, TAX MAP KEY: (2)2-1-008 FOR BEACH ACCESS STAIRWAY PURPOSES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources to issue a term, non-exclusive easement covering a portion of state submerged lands at Wailea, on the island of Maui, for the use, repair, and maintenance of an existing stairway.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Your Committee notes that section 171-53, Hawaii Revised Statutes, requires the prior approval of the Governor and prior authorization of the Legislature by concurrent resolution for the disposition of state submerged lands.
Your Committee finds that portions of the existing beach access stairway fronting the property identified as Tax Map Key: (2) 2-1-008: seaward of 069, Wailea, Maui, are located on state submerged lands. Your Committee further finds that, on January 22, 2021, under agenda item D-5, the Board of Land and Natural Resources approved the issuance of a twenty-five-year term, non-exclusive easement to resolve the beach access stairway encroachment.
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 S.C.R. No. 141, 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
