“This is a Maui update, and there’s a bill being introduced today that addresses the following:

– First is they wanna establish an authority to develop plans to redevelop areas affected by disaster. The people of Lahaina are adamantly opposed to this because it brings people that are not from Lahaina into Lahaina, in positions to make decisions for how they move forward.

– Second is the bill establishes an income tax credit to incentivize the voluntary relinquishment of property located in areas affected by disaster. That one speaks for itself.

– Third and most alarming is this bill directs the attorney general to commence imminent domain proceedings.
