HONOLULU, Hawai‘i – The Senate Water, Land and Agriculture Committee (WLA), will hold an informational briefing on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 10:30 a.m., in Conference Room 224 to get an update on the Report and Recommendations of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Revocable Permits Task Force.

“It’s important for legislators and the public to learn more about the changes being implemented to improve the DLNR’s revocable permit program,” said Senator Gabbard, chair of the Water, Land, and Agriculture Committee. “The use of public land should be handled in a fair and transparent way.”

In February of this year, media outlets, such as the Honolulu Star Advertiser, shined a light on the fact that the DLNR’s revocable permit program was fraught with inconsistencies and lacked clear, logical protocols and criteria.

In response, DLNR convened a Task Force to improve its revocable permit in February 2016. On May 27, 2016, the Task Force issued its report and recommendations, which were unanimously approved by the Board of Land and Natural Resources on June 24th.  The Task Force report, their recommendations, and DLNR’s plans for implementation will be addressed at this informational briefing.

Presentations will be made by:

  • Department of Land and Natural Resources Revocable Permits Task Force
  • Department of Land and Natural Resources

More information on the briefing can be found on the hearing notice:
