Senator Shimabukuro’s February Column in Westside Stories

Aloha!

Here is a preview of some of the bills I am working on this session:

HOUSING & HOMELESSNESS

Mobile Home Parks: Legalization of trailer parks for low-income individuals on public and private land.  Allows shipping containers to be used as residential structures at these parks.

Hawaiian Home Lands Rentals:  Makes permanent Acts which require the counties to issue affordable housing credits for each residential unit developed by DHHL.  Adds incentives for condominiums, rentals, and other multi-family developments.

AGRICULTURE

Farm Worker Housing: Allows shipping containers to be used for farm worker housing on agricultural lands, under certain restrictions.

Taro Lands: Preserves wetland taro lands and infrastructure on undeveloped lands; establishes a 4th taro lands classification for public lands, and permits structures for lo‘i taro fields in the agricultural district.  Establishes growth and perpetuation of traditional Hawaiian crops as a goal of the State Planning Act, and authorizes BLNR, with the Taro Security and Purity Task Force, to create an inventory of taro lands.

CONSUMER PROTECTION

Retirement Benefits: Allows divorcing spouses to obtain direct payment from the other spouse’s state “Employees Retirement System” (ERS) benefits.

Auto Accident Recovery: Requires insurance companies to promptly pay claimants the minimum undisputed monetary damages while litigation is on-going.

Worker’s Compensation: Requires doctors conducting “independent medical examinations” (IME) for workers compensation purposes to be practicing doctors in the state of HI.

Mahalo for the privilege of serving you.  Contact me with your concerns, at 586-7793.  Happy Valentine’s Day!
