Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.B. No. 494 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to deem an organization that receives a motor vehicle as a charitable donation, upon receipt of the motor vehicle, to be a transferee of title or interest, subject to certain rights, responsibilities, and liabilities.
Your Committee finds that this measure will ensure that when individuals donate their motor vehicles to a charitable organization, that organization will be subject to the rights, responsibilities, and liabilities of a transferee upon receipt of the motor vehicle.
(1) Changing the effective date to June 30, 3000, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
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. 494, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 494, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
