A group of Hawaii lawmakers are proposing a resolution that, if passed, would try to get Congress to allow foreign-built ships to carry cargo to Hawaii from the Mainland.
Senator Sam Slom is trying to get this one exemption to the Jones Act in an effort to lower shipping costs to Hawaii. The costs are five times more expensive, according to reports.
Senator Slom talks to Michael N Hansen President of the Hawaii Shippers Council.
