RE: S.B. No. 844
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Culture, Arts & International Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 844, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SPECIAL NUMBER PLATES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from Hui O Ho‘ohonua dba Mālama Pu‘uloa, Ali‘i Pauahi Hawaiian Civic Club, and six individuals.
Your Committee finds that the issuance of a special number plate commemorating Malama Puuloa is an appropriate way to support the organization's mission to restore Keawalau o Puuloa, also known as Puuloa or Pearl Harbor.
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 Culture, Arts & International Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 844, S.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 844, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Culture, Arts & International Affairs,
ADRIAN K. TAM, Chair
