The proposal follows a similar measure last year that banned emoluments for county mayors and the governor.
Gov. David Ige vetoed a similar proposal in 2019 over worries that it would hinder law enforcement operations.
A companion measure is still alive in the Senate, though the gambling bills face opposition from some legislative leaders and the governor.
The lieutenant governor and former Honolulu mayor are likely competitors in the 2022 contest.
