Speaker, House of Representatives
State of Hawaii
The purpose of this measure is to request the Legislative Reference Bureau to study potential solutions for the legal and physical situation at Sunset Memorial Park in Pearl City, Oahu, and make recommendations for a long-term management plan.
Your Committee finds that the company that owned Sunset Memorial Park involuntarily dissolved in 2006 and the company's owner passed away in 2011, leaving the property in legal limbo. As a result, Sunset Memorial Park has been in a state of disrepair and deterioration for many years, with little to no relief for the loved ones of those buried there.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Requesting the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, rather than the Legislative Reference Bureau, to study potential solutions and make recommendations for a long-term management plan for Sunset Memorial Park; and
(2) Amending its title in accordance with its amended purpose; and
(3) 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 Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 30, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as H.R. No. 30, H.D. 1.
