TESTIMONY IN SUPPORT OF HB943

RELATING TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

To:  Chair Mark M. Nakashima, Chair, Vice Chair Jarrett Keohokalole and Members of the House Economic Development and Business (EDB) Committee

Date: February 10, 2017

Time: 9:00 am

Room Number: House Committee Conference Room 309

Hawaii State Capitol

415 South Beretania Street

Honolulu, Hawaii  96813

 

Honorable Chair, Vice Chair and Members of the EDB Committee,

On behalf of _______________, I am writing in SUPPORT of HB943 which will establish a Kapolei Jobs Initiative Pilot Program that offers incentives to increase the number of businesses willing to establish themselves or open a new location in the Kapolei region.

This initiative will realize the State’s long standing policy of redirecting growth to the second urban core, creating jobs in the Kapolei region and reducing traffic congestion. More jobs in the Kapolei Region are needed to keep pace with Kapolei’s population growth.  This is evident in the traffic congestion caused by the number of people who still have to commute to downtown Honolulu for work every day.  Job creation in the Kapolei region is a quality-of-life, community-building concern affecting employers and employees alike.

I encourage you to support this bill that will bring jobs to the Kapolei region affecting the lives of many.
