Preserving Kaka'ako Makai

Hawaii State Capitol
House of Representatives Floor Session

Watch this video on the House of Representatives (closed to the public) floor vote discussion in April 2021 regarding a resolution to convene a working group to come to a solution to this 16 year battle for the future of Kaka’ako Makai.  In the end, OHA refused to participate.

It is very sad that our elected officials will favor the interests of a specific entity over the general public and use language that is so unprofessional.
The take away from this video is many of our Senate and House elected officials are now backing OHA.  This issue will be back next session so we need to be ready!
