RE: H.C.R. No. 86
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 86 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE LEGISLATIVE REFERENCE BUREAU TO CONDUCT A STUDY ON SYSTEMS OF FIREARMS INSURANCE AND OTHER FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS PERTAINING TO FIREARMS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support from the Attorney General. Your Committee received testimony in opposition from one individual. Your Committee received testimony in written comments from the Legislative Reference Bureau.
Your Committee has amended this measure by replacing reference to conducting a study with the word 'report' throughout the Resolution. Additionally, this measure has been amended by adopting suggestions from the Legislative Reference Bureau that they compile a summary of other jurisdictions that have mandatory insurance laws that have been enacted or may be enacted soon and any other current laws that impose other financial responsibilities on firearms. This measure has also been amended to ask the Insurance Commissioner to provide an analysis of the feasibility and costs of firearms insurance and other financial responsibility requirements and to examine how these systems may be implemented in the State of Hawaii.
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 concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 86, as amended herein, and recommends its adoption in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 86, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
