STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1806
RE: H.B. No. 1109
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 1109, H.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO COMMERCIAL DRIVER LICENSING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to meet federal requirements on fraudulent activity relating to commercial learner's permits and commercial driver's licenses.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee finds that the Department of Transportation is required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, pursuant to title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations section 383.73(k)(2), to have policies in effect that result, at minimum, in the disqualification of the commercial learner's permits and commercial driver's licenses for applicants who are suspected of fraud related to the testing and issuance of that commercial learner's permits and commercial driver's licenses. This measure provides accountability for drivers who obtain a commercial learner's permit or commercial driver's license while also conforming to federal requirements.
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 H.B. No. 1109, H.D. 2, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
