MAYOR APPLAUDS COUNCIL DECISION

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann today applauded the Honolulu City Council’s decision to put off indefinitely action on Bill 71, effectively sustaining his veto of the measure.

 

“I’m pleased a majority of the council acted in the best interest of city taxpayers,” Hannemann said, “by deciding not to enact a bill that almost certainly would have led to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal expenses.”

 

“I look forward to working with the council on Bill 6, a compromise bill that has the support of the visitor industry, the ACLU, and is much more likely to keep taxpayers out of court,” Hannemann said.
