RE: S.C.R. No. 165
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.C.R. No. 165, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS TO CONSENT TO THE ENACTMENT OF ACT 80, SESSION LAWS OF HAWAII 2017,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the United States Congress to consent to the enactment of Act 80, Session Laws of Hawaii 2017 (Act 80).
Your Committee amended this measure by deleting language referring to blood quantum dilution due to inter-marriages, as it may cause federal issues with regard to 25 CFR 83.11.
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 concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 165, S.D. 1, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
