STAND. COM. REP. NO.  1068-16

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

                , 2016

 

RE:   S.B. No. 2032

      S.D. 1

 

 

 

Honorable Joseph M. Souki

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Eighth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2016

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

     Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred S.B. No. 2032, S.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CAMPAIGN SPENDING,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose of this measure is to clarify campaign spending reporting requirements by:

 

     (1)  Clarifying the due dates for delivery of candidates' preliminary, final, and supplemental reports to the Campaign Spending Commission; and

 

     (2)  Requiring all past and current candidates with a registered candidate committee to file supplemental reports on January 31 and July 31 of every year.

 

Your Committee finds this measure enhances candidates' understanding of campaign spending reporting deadlines because it more clearly states the requirements that are the current practice of the Campaign Spending Commission.

 

     The Campaign Spending Commission, Common Cause Hawaii, and one concerned individual testified in support of this measure.


     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2032, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
