Abercrombie, Kauai push against Niihau regulation

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie and local government officials in Kauai are pushing for state lawmakers to avoid bills that would regulate coastal and marine resources near the island of Niihau.

The Garden Island newspaper reported Tuesday that Abercrombie told Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. that his administration won't take any affirmative action on the Niihau regulation proposals until state and local lawmakers collaborate and figure out how community members will be heard.

Carvalho wrote to Abercrombie saying he is concerned about proposals in the House and Senate to do things like establish no-fishing zones and regulate opihi harvesting.

Abercrombie told Carvalho it appears most of the bills will be defeated anyway.

The Kauai County Council this month asked legislators and state agencies to stop plans to regulate Niihau.
