     (b)  The working group shall consist of the following members:

     (1)  The director of health, or the director's designee, who shall serve as the chair;

     (2)  The comptroller, or the comptroller's designee;

     (3)  A representative from the environmental service agency of each county, to be appointed by the mayor of the county in which the agency is located;

     (4)  A building industry representative, to be appointed by the senate president;

     (5)  A representative of a non-governmental organization in the reuse and recycling industry, to be appointed by the speaker of the house of representatives;

     (6)  The president of the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, or the president's designee; and

     (7)  A member of the state building code council to be appointed by the members of the council.

     (c)  Members of the working group shall serve without compensation but may be reimbursed for expenses, including travel expenses, necessary for the performance of their duties.

     (d)  The working group shall submit an interim report of its progress to the legislature no later than twenty days prior to the regular session of 2020, and a final report of its findings and recommendations, including any proposed legislation, to the legislature no later than twenty days prior to the regular session of 2021.

     (e)  The working group shall cease to exist on June 30, 2021.

     SECTION 3.  This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2100.
