Legislators postpone vote on proposals to develop public land

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii lawmakers have postponed a vote on proposals to allow the state to partner with private companies to develop some public land.

Earlier this week, Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed a law repealing the state's existing Public Land Development Corp. in the face of overwhelming public criticism. Lawmakers are hoping to move forward with more cautious pilot projects this year.

A committee of negotiators met Thursday to decide whether to advance a plan to develop underused school lands. Another committee also met Thursday to consider creating an agency called the Public-Private Partnership Authority. It would initiate three pilot projects, including building a film studio.

Lawmakers in both negotiating committees put off voting until Friday. Committees must agree on one version of each bill by then in order for the proposals to advance.
