STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1787
RE: S.C.R. No. 58
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water & Land, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 58, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE SALE OF A LEASE OF CERTAIN SUBMERGED LANDS AT KANEOHE BAY, KANEOHE, OAHU, FOR NON-COMMERCIAL BOAT PIER PURPOSES, BY PUBLIC AUCTION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources to lease a portion of state submerged lands seaward of the property identified as Tax Map Key number (1) 4‑4‑022:032, Kaneohe Bay, Kaneohe, Oahu, for non-commercial boat pier purposes for a term of fifty-five years, pursuant to section 171-53(c), Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Your Committee finds that the terms of the lease will prohibit the lessee from authorizing tenants to live aboard their vessels or otherwise use their vessels as a place of principal habitation. In addition, the Department of Land and Natural Resources is in the process of offering a lease by public auction for submerged lands immediately adjacent to the Kaneohe Yacht Club. Your Committee further finds that this measure comports with section 171-53(c), Hawaii Revised Statutes, which requires the prior approval of the Governor and prior authorization of the Legislature by concurrent resolution to lease state submerged lands.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 58, S.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water & Land,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
