Hawaii Bills Failed, Would Have Authorized PACE, Helped Identify and Manage Important Agricultural Lands

Two bills that would have helped protect agricultural land in Hawaii failed this spring. SB 3051 would have created a state agricultural land protection program to purchase agricultural conservation easements. SB 3052 would have provided additional guidance in identifying and managing the state's "Important Agricultural Lands" and provided additional review of rezoning on these lands. Both bills passed the Senate and House but died in conference committee.
