News from Hawaii is that the revised environmental impact statement for Hawaii was accepted by default in the meeting of the Board of Land and Natural Resources. Y0u can read a write up about the meeting here.

OATA joined other global trade organisations to write to support the industry in advance of the meeting held on 25 June.

OFI updated us after the meeting with the following:

The vote was a tie (3:3), so technically no decision has been made, but because of time limits mandated by law, the RFEIS will be deemed accepted when 30 days have gone since it was published. The deadline for any changes is thus July 8, whereas the Board doesn’t have another scheduled meeting before the 9th.

However, there is likely to be continued interventions on this so this is unlikely to be the end of it.

Watch the meeting here.
