The working group chaired by Representatives Daniel Holt and Andrew Takuya Garrett is set to meet on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 2 p.m. to gather public input on their draft report. The Jobs & Business Working Group aims to assess the Maui unemployment rate, explore methods for resuming business activity, and examine the effects of tourism on a statewide level in order to develop recommendations for legislative action. This aligns with House Rule 17 and House Resolution 224 (2023), which established interim House working groups responsible for examining specific topics related to the Lahaina wildfire and proposing suitable legislative actions.
The panel comprises representatives Terez Amato, Trish La Chica, Rachele F. Lamosao, Scot Z. Matayoshi, Representative Dee Morikawa, Nadine K. Nakamura, Mark M. Nakashima, Sean Quinlan, and Gene Ward. The working group will conduct the meeting via video conference and in-person in Conference Room 329 at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol.
