Senate Concurrent Resolution 7 is scheduled for a hearing on Monday, February 9th at 2:50pm, Conference Room 224 at the State Capitol.

SCR7 to be heard on Monday (February 9) at 2:50pm, Conference Room 224

How can you support the bill?

Support the bill by logging into the Hawai’i State Capitol website and submit testimony or testify in-person. This bill phases in the increased use of Hawaiian plants in new and renovated publicly-funded landscaping projects. Hawaiian plants are important both culturally and ecologically, and the use of Hawaiian plants fosters a uniquely Hawaiian sense of place.

Sample Testimony

I strongly SUPPORT SCR7 which is a resolution that requests that the executive branch provide accurate and complete Act 178 reports. Act 178 was enacted as a temporary measure to provide OHA with an annual amount of $15.1 million in public land trust revenues until further action is taken by the Legislature. I believe that the legislature, the executive branch, and OHA and its beneficiaries must have an accurate basis of data to analyze what OHA’s annual pro rata share should be. This resolution is an opportunity to revisit the long-standing issue of public land trust revenue that is owed to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, which the agency uses to improve the conditions of Native Hawaiians. I urge the committee to PASS this measure.
