Honolulu Advertiser Chimes in on Environmental Reform

Today's Honolulu Advertiser considers the legislature's ambitious plan to reform Hawaii's environmental laws in, "EIS reform: The cure may be worse than disease."

The Advertiser notes that "Senate Bill 2818, the culmination of two years of study by a University of Hawai'i panel, was greeted with almost universal criticism after it was introduced in January."  It recommends that: "It's time to pause and take a deep breath. The current statutes are cumbersome, but for the most part they work."
