HERE IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF THE MINI PLDC (SB215 SD3) DESIGNED TO
SET UP THE STRUCTURE FOR THE PLDC INTENT TO TAKE OVER
OUR PUBLIC LANDS, OUR SCHOOL LANDS AND PUBLIC HARBORS
if these programs are so innocuous there would be no reason to create
a new million dollar staff structure with its own laws and rules.
REPORT FROM DONNA WONG ABOUT THIS MINI-PLDC BILL: Today 3/19 the House Economic Development and Business (EDB), Clift Tsuji chair and Water & Land (WTL), Cindy Evans, chair, heard SB 215 SD3, attached, which creates the Public-Private Partnership Authority. SB 215 SD3 states that the authority is for only 3 projects - a film studio on Maui that mayor wants and is working with private interests, a main-stream project that Donovan Dela Cruz wants on state land that houses a library, Wahiawa Clinic, a DOE office and a transit station and the county project has been identified as redevelopment of Aloha Stadium.
But Ester Kiaaina, deputy DLNR, stated that PPPA is needed to help repair harbors on the Big Island so it is obvious that once passed PPPA will eventually become a permanent authority
EDB & WTL will vote on SB 215 SD3 tomorrow March 9th 8:30, let's see which if any of them have the strength of character to vote against this manipulative legislation.

* PPPA is a PLDC clone and like PLDC will have to go through the rule making process
* PPPA can lease and manage public land, set up a special fund, implement projects, have a board of directors (5)
* The cost of operating PPPA is $1 million a year for an executive director & staff for 3 projects for 3 years, to be repealed 2018 = $1 million dollars per project.
* We don't need any more authorities or corporations to add to the 10 existing authorities and corporations that all have some exemptions - Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC), Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA), Aloha Tower Development Authority (ATDC), HTA (Hawaii Tourism Authority), HHFDC (hawaii housing finance & development corporation), Hight Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), Hawaii Strategic Development Corporation (HSDC), Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (HELHA), Research Corporation of UH, and Hawaii Public Housing Authority (HPHA)
YET WATCH HOW THE PEOPLE SPOKE OUT AGAINST ALL OF THIS LEGISLATION.
