Hawai`i 2050 Sustainability Plan Clarification

Hawai`i 2050 Sustainability Plan Clarification

10/14/2010
From minutes:…”HI sustainable 2050 law is what we need to refer to, as we are
trying to implement it.”
Clarification:
The “Hawai`i 2050 Sustainability Plan” is not a law or ordinance. It is a “plan” created by a task force appointed by state legislation related to review of the Hawai’i State Plan – specifically, to create some new “guidelines” for implementing previously existing legislation. From the original bill:
“The plan shall be prepared to define and implement state goals, objectives, policies, and priority guidelines using sections 226-3 to 226-27, Hawaii Revised Statutes, as guiding principles.”
Full original bill:

HRS 226 is the complete State Planning Act.

Alex Frost can probably give specifics on what if any legal “teeth” (force of law) the 2050 plan has, if any.
