House Bill 1067 requests that there be “No Further Development” on the Mauna Kea summit. Mauna Kea is sacred to the Kanaka Maoli peoples, contains important and significant cultural and natural resources, sits on five aquifer systems that provide water for Hawai’i island, and is home to endangered or threatened organisms found nowhere else on the plant and fragile ecological environments.
This bill has been given triple referrals which is the ‘kiss of death’ UNLESS we get a hearing by FRIDAY, February 1, 2019 for one of the committees it was referred too.
