MEDIA RELEASE

The state House Water & Land Committee and Finance Committee unanimously adopted HB1133, which would repeal the Public Land Development Corporation.

The bill will now be subject to a full vote on the House floor and, should it pass, cross over to the Senate for consideration.

The remainder of the bills relating to the PLDC, which would have severely overhauled its scope and administrative rules, have been held in committee.

“The public has spoken and the House has responded,” said WAL Chairwoman Cindy Evans (North Kona, North Kohala, South Kohala). “It was made clear that the best course of action would be to repeal this controversial corporation and that’s what we have moved to do.”
