Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say

Speaker, House of Representatives

Twenty-Sixth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2012

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

     Your Committee on Public Safety & Military Affairs, to which was referred H.R. No. 172 entitled:

 

"HOUSE RESOLUTION ENCOURAGING THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TO PROCURE GOODS AND SERVICES THAT ARE USED TO SUPPORT HAWAII-BASED UNITED STATES MILITARY PERSONNEL AND FACILITIES FROM HAWAII BUSINESSES AND TO COOPERATE WITH THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OF HAWAII TO HOST TRADE SHOWS THAT FEATURE LOCAL BUSINESSES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose of this measure is to:

 

(1)  Encourage the United States Department of Defense to procure from Hawaii businesses a greater percentage of goods and services that it needs for its Hawaii-based military personnel and facilities; and

 

(2)  Urge the appropriate agencies of the United States Department of Defense to cooperate with The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii to manage trade shows and other events that highlight and exhibit locally-sourced goods and services for military contracting officers.

 

     The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii testified in support of this measure.

 

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Public Safety & Military Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 172 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Economic Revitalization & Business.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Public Safety & Military Affairs,
