Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 1189, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CAMPAIGN FINANCE,"

Your Committee finds that reporting requirements are important aspects of democracy as it ensures transparency and allows voters to make better informed decisions on certain candidates. This measure will enhance transparency by requiring an additional reporting date for a preliminary report.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(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 S.B. No. 1189, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1189, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
