Legislative Investigation of Bureau of Conveyances to Begin

The joint Senate-House committee to investigate the management and operations of the State Bureau of Conveyances will hold its first public meeting on Wednesday, June 20, 2007 at 10:00 a.m., State Capitol, Room 329. The committee will investigate the security of recorded documents, private computer access and tampering of documents. This first meeting appears to be organizational in nature for the purpose of adopting rules, and discussing procedures for securing witnesses, the production of documents, and the issuance of subpoenas. No public testimony will be accepted.

Senator Jill Tokuda and Rep. Joseph Souki serve as Co-chairs. Members are Senators Carol Fukunaga, David Ige, Russell Kokubun, and Mike Gabbard, and Representatives Sharon Har, Karl Rhoads, James Kunane Tokioka and Cynthia Thielen. For background information, see SCR 226, which passed this session following the failed confirmation of the Chairperson of the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
