Mayor Victorino issues statement on Maui County Council's decision to file Bill 10

Mayor Michael Victorino issued a statement on today’s decision by the Maui County Council to file Bill 10. The bill would have delayed affordable housing project approvals and decreased the availability of workforce housing at the taxpayers’ expense. Mayor Victorino vetoed the bill on April 19, 2021.

“The good intentions behind this bill were never in question; my concern was about the unintended outcomes. I appreciate Councilmember Kelly King for joining Maui County Council Chair Alice Lee and Councilmember Yuki-Lei Sugimura in reconsidering our working families’ urgent need for attainable housing. While no single proposal can solve our current housing shortage, we know from previous experience that Bill 10 would not have produced the housing we need.  My administration looks forward to working with the entire County Council on new creative ways to develop workforce housing, as well as affordable low-income housing, without delay.”
