Honolulu, Hawaii– The House today passed two concurrent resolutions to rename the Kilauea Point Lighthouse on Kauai the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse (HCR 41), and designate Hawaii Island’s Saddle Road as the Daniel K. Inouye Legacy Highway (HCR 42).

HCR 41 was introduced by Kauai Representatives Derek Kawakami (Hanalei, Princeville, Kilauea, Anahola, Kapaa, Wailua) and James Tokioka (Wailua Homesteads, Hanamaulu, Lihue, Puhi, Old Koloa Town, Omao) on behalf of the Kauai Caucus. HCR 42 was introduced by Representatives Mark Nakashima (Hamakua, North Hilo, South Hilo) and Cindy Evans (North Kona, North Kohala, South Kohala) on behalf of the Hawaii Island Caucus.

In his remarks today, Representative Derek Kawakami said, “the Kilauea Point Lighthouse is similar to our beloved Senator. Both provided guidance and protection. Both served to protect the weak from the mighty. Both provide beacons of hope and comfort.”

In introducing the resolution to rename Saddle Road on Hawaii Island, Representative Mark Nakashima said, “United States Senator Daniel Inouye was a true statesman having devoted his life to service of his country in the battlefields of Europe and in the halls of Congress. With values born in Hawaii, the Senator’s actions were visionary and looked to invest in the future of Hawaii for generations to come. The Saddle Road Project is one such investment that will bridge east and west Hawaii.”

The measures now advance to the Senate for their consideration

    You should have left the name Saddle Road alone. People’s choice
