2017 DHHL LEGISLATIVE PACKAGE – PROPOSED LEGISLATIVE ACTION REQUEST

News Release from DHHL, July 20, 2016

Every year, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands prepares and submits legislative proposals for inclusion in the Governor’s Administrative Package for the next session of the Hawaii State Legislature.  For the 2017 package, the department is soliciting recommendations from beneficiaries and the general public for consideration in our legislative package. The deadline for proposals is August 10, 2016.

Proposal Guidelines

Proposals must be good public policy for the department; must address the department’s operations, programs, regulations, processes, budget and/or resources; and must create a benefit or an advantage for the department, the trust, or trust beneficiaries, or otherwise correct a deficiency.  Authors of proposals should keep in mind that amendments to the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, 1920, require review by the U.S. Department of the Interior and may require the consent of the U.S. Congress prior to implementation.

Review and Consideration

Staff will review and evaluate all proposals and will determine which will be submitted for consideration for the Governor’s Administrative Package.  The proposals to be submitted to the Governor will be approved by the Hawaiian Homes Commission.  Proposals not submitted to the Governor may be introduced independent of the administrative package. Please note that the Governor may also choose not to include proposals submitted by the Commission.

Submission

Proposals can be submitted by filling out the online form below, or by downloading a PDF form here and emailing the completed form to:

Additional information can also be submitted by email.  If you already have a bill drafted, please send that as well.  Completed proposal forms must be submitted by August 10, 2016.
