STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1113
RE: S.B. No. 763
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 763, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to temporarily exempt Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation affordable housing projects from certain state and county fees and exactions when the units of the housing project are exclusively made available to certain qualified residents.
Your Committees did not receive any testimony on this measure.
Your Committees find that this measure would reduce the costs for developers to construct affordable housing, thereby encouraging the production of much-needed affordable housing units in the State.
Your Committees have amended this measure by inserting an effective date of March 22, 2075, to encourage further discussion.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 763, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommend that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 763, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
KARL RHOADS, Chair
