Representative Holt's Message                                          

Aloha mai kākou,

This past week, Gov. David Ige signed three bills that set a carbon-neutral goal by 2045, create a carbon offset program and require a sea-level rise analysis in environmental impact statements.  Click here for more information

Gov. David Ige also signed a second supplemental emergency proclamation adding housing and law-enforcement provisions to ensure the health and safety of the people who have been most affected by the ongoing Kīlauea eruption. 
 
The second supplemental proclamation permits the governor and/or mayor to take the following actions with respect to housing:
  • Establish guidelines for providing accommodations and shelter
  • Identify county, state and private locations and facilities suitable for use as shelters
  • Provide for relocation and rehabilitation for disaster victims
  • Make state lands available for housing
 The second supplemental proclamation sets criminal penalties for those violating emergency rules, including:
  • Interfering with emergency personnel
  • Failing to comply with reasonable directions of emergency personnel
  • Failing to evacuate
  • Violating curfew
The emergency rules also prohibit the operation of drones in the incident area.

Gov. David Ige with Mayor Harry Kim signed a Letter of Agreement releasing $12 million to support the county’s response to the active volcanic eruption occurring on Hawai‘i Island, along the East Rift Zone in Lower Puna.
 
While the funding could be used for emergency supplies and temporary shelter-related goods and services, the agreement specifies that the funds are not intended for long-term infrastructure repairs or for private purposes such as the repair or rebuilding of private dwellings.

Today, Gov. David Ige signed a comprehensive housing measure aimed at increasing the production of affordable rental units across the state.
 
HB2748 appropriates $200 million to the Hawai‘i Housing Finance and Development Corporation’s (HHFDC) Rental Housing Revolving Fund, and $10 million to the HHFDC’s Dwelling Unit Revolving Fund (DURF). The bill also extends the general excise tax exemption for certain affordable rental housing projects from June 30, 2022 to June 30, 2026, and increases the cap on GET exemptions to $30 million per year until 2030.

 
As always, our office is here to serve you, so please feel free to contact my office with any questions or concerns you might have at (808) 586-6180 or via email at repholt@capitol.hawaii.gov.

E holomua kākou,
