Bill would enhance PTA

By 67AM KPUA News

Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa is set to wrap up a six-month congressional focus on Asia and the Pacific tomorrow with the introduction of a bill that seeks further security assessments in the region and takes steps to reassure regional allies. The Hawai`i Democrat is joining Virginia Republican Randy Forbes, who chairs the House Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces in sponsoring the Asia-Pacific Region Priority Act, which would also give priority to investments in Hawai`is training ranges.

The bill would direct congress to make Hawai`i Islands Pohakuloa Training Area the premier training range in the Pacific through series of upgrades including a runway capable of accommodating C-17 Globemaster cargo jets and moving an existing high-speed vessel to Hawai`i to lower transportation costs.
