Mayor Caldwell takes action on bill

News Release from Office of the Mayor, October 25, 2019

HONOLULU – Due to legal concerns regarding Bill 37 (2019), CD1, FD1, and because the effective date is not until the end of May 2020, Mayor Kirk Caldwell allowed the legislation to become law Thursday without his signature. In the period between now and when Bill 37 becomes effective, the mayor will work with interested parties to rectify the issues concerning this bill.

Bill 37 (2019), CD1, FD1 – Relating to community workforce agreements (CWAs), also known as project work agreements (PWAs). 

“I appreciate Councilmember Joey Manahan for introducing and working hard on Bill 37 along with other City Council members, as the goal of Community Workforce Agreements is to promote efficient and timely construction projects without disruptions and to do so using local labor,” said Mayor Caldwell. “I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders to resolve the legal concerns pertaining to this bill, including amending the bill where necessary and passing legislation at the state level, thus allowing all counties greater flexibility in implementing Community Workforce Agreements.”

Mayor Caldwell’s letter to City Council Chair Ikaika Anderson and the other members of the legislative body regarding his concerns about Bill 37 (2019), CD1, FD1 is attached.
