State Bills, Great Video and Planning for the Windward Commission

State Bills HB1838 & SB2919

Bills HB1838 and SB2919 are working their way through the State House and Senate.  Though much of the original language is gone, the bills do give Hawaii County the ability to phase out non-conforming uses.  What does this mean?  It means that Hawaii County can ban STVRs at will in any zoning.

This makes it all the more important to defeat Bill 121.  Once Hawaii County forces families to apply for permits, the next step will be an effort to ban our industry entirely.  It happened on Oahu, it is happening on Maui and it will happen here.

A Great Explanation of Bill 121

Maly Romero did a great job unpacking Bill 121 and how it will impact families.  Please share this around!
