STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1262
RE: S.B. No. 422
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection, to which was referred S.B. No. 422, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL ADVISORY COUNCIL,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that when Act 152, Session Laws of Hawaii 2021, administratively transferred the Environmental Advisory Council from the Department of Health to the Office of Planning and Sustainable Development, certain statutes were repealed. This measure provides a housekeeping amendment to delete a reference to a repealed section of the law.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 422, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Energy & Environmental Protection,
NICOLE E. LOWEN, Chair
