Alternative Proposal: Senate Bill 2830: Relating to Environmental Protection

An alternative proposal to the Study's omnibus bill has been introduced into the Senate. SB2830 proposes to
  • Remove the University of Hawaii Environmental Center from the environmental quality control process;

  • Transfer the Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC) from the Department of Health to the Office of the Governor; and

  • Revise the environmental review process to create an approach that is based primarily on land use decisions rather than individual projects.
Introducer: SAKAMOTO
