COM. REP. NO. 741
RE: H.B. No. 156
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 H.B. No. 156 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ANIMAL CONTROL SERVICES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that the statutory requirement that the County of Kauai contract solely with the Kauai Humane Society for animal control services is outdated and has been superseded by the County's ability to offer public contracts to other animal control service providers. Your Committee also finds that construction of the dog pound authorized by statute has been completed. Accordingly, the statutory provision is obsolete and should be repealed.
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 is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 156 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
