PLDC Hearing Info

Aloha all,

I just received this notice from Sen. Ihara today. Thought you might like to attend.



In case you haven’t heard yet, the first bill to address the PLDC law (SB942) has been scheduled for a hearing by the House Transportation Committee on Wed, Jan. 30, 10am, in conf. rm. 309. SB942 seems to repeal much of the PLDC law, HRS §171C, including exemptions, but not sure what harmful powers still remain.

  2. Just read HB942 (email mistakenly says SB942). Seem to severely amend Act 55 by changing name and limiting scope somewhat. Stills seems a very bad Bill. Is not a repeal but just a amend and morph. Gh

  3. Agreed Gary! I received a list of actual repeal bills sent to me by Hawaii Thousand Friends. I’m thinking the one to get behind is SB 245 – Introduced by L. Thielen, Baker, Ihara, Ruderman, Slom

    Here is the link:

    Here is the full list:

    As of this posting, none of the PLDC bills have been scheduled for a hearing. If you want any or all repeal PLDC bills to be heard, call or email the committee chair(s) and ask that the bill(s) be heard.
