STAND. COM. REP. NO. 936
RE: H.B. No. 1020
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 1020 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PAYMENT OF CLAIMS OF THE UNCLAIMED PROPERTY PROGRAM,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that claims from the prior fiscal year waiting to be paid often exceed the $1,300,000 opening balance of the Unclaimed Property Trust Fund, which delays the payment of claims. This measure will permit the timely payment of claims at the beginning of the fiscal year.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1020 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
KYLE T. YAMASHITA, Chair
