STAND. COM. REP. NO. 848
President of the Senate
State of Hawaii
The purpose and intent of this measure is to:
(2) Establish a penalty.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Honolulu Tower Association of Apartment Owners and two individuals.
Your Committee finds that usage of unmanned aircraft systems, commonly known as drones, has become increasingly popular across the State. Drones have approached private property, hovering nearby at various times throughout the day. However, there is presently a lack of regulation regarding drone usage and enforcement in private areas. This measure addresses the concerns of residents across the State while also establishing enforcement measures to promote responsible drone usage.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 989 and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
KARL RHOADS, Chair
