Where are the Act 2 Section 4 Quarterly Reports?

I am about half way through Act 2 listing the conditions that create a "closed class of one," but in the process I came across the following. Where are these quarterly reports?

"PART II SECTION 4. (c) The governor shall also review and determine the efficacy and appropriateness of all conditions or protocols established pursuant to this section and report to the legislature at the end of each fiscal quarter of the State on the efficacy and appropriateness of all conditions or protocols established pursuant to this section and the costs incurred by the State in establishing and maintaining the enforcement activities required under this section."

There's more where this came from,
Aloha, Brad

Re: The required Act 2 Section 4 quarterly reports to the Legislature on the Governor's EO:

Well, it's interesting, since Lingle's own Attorney General wrote the law, you would think one of the lawyers working for Lingle would have remembered these quarterly reports to be filed with the Legislature on her EO that they volunteered into the law.

But, that they may have been forgotten is an indication that they were never really important to Lingle nor her Administration to begin with.

It's interesting because the quarterly reports relate to the resource depletion issue that came up over the Summer and yet still that did not jog anybody's memory that they needed to be doing a quarterly report on it and maybe even amending the EO each quarter as Act 2 clearly states.

Personally, I don't think many people have actually gone through and read Act 2 line-by-line. I sure hope the Supreme Court does.

Of particular interest to the Supreme Court regarding a 'closed class of one' may be Section 15 and the content of the operating agreement between HSF and the State.
