STAND. COM. REP. NO. 505
RE: H.B. No. 1154
Honorable Joseph M. Souki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Eighth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2015
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services, to which was referred H.B. No. 1154 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO FUNDING FOR PARKING FOR DISABLED PERSONS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to provide an additional source of funding for the Disabled Person Parking Program by increasing the annual vehicle registration fee by $1, which will be deposited into the Disability and Communication Access Board Special Fund.
Your Committee notes that the intent of this measure is not necessarily to increase fees individuals must pay for vehicle registration, but to provide funds for the Disabled Person Parking Program with revenues from a portion of the motor vehicle registration fee. Should the Committee on Finance deliberate this measure further, your Committee respectfully requests that it consider looking into the Department of Transportation's portion of funding from the annual motor vehicle registration fee and the possibility of adjusting the distribution of funding to the Department.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1154 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services,
DEE MORIKAWA, Chair
