Mayor Victorino Issues statement on Maui County Council’s decision to refer Bill 60 to committee

Mayor Michael Victorino issued a statement today on the Maui County Council’s decision to refer to committee Bill 60, the proposed hotel construction moratorium bill. Mayor Victorino vetoed the bill on July 20, 2021.

“I share the community’s concerns about the direction of tourism in the County of Maui and I deeply appreciate the Maui County Council’s work on Bill 60. However, it would be ineffective in transforming our hospitality industry to be more compatible with the needs of our community and natural environment. 

By working together, I am confident we can develop a comprehensive plan to control the expansion of all transient accommodations, especially those creeping into our residential neighborhoods. My administration looks forward to working with the Maui County Council and all stakeholders to develop a more thoughtful plan for managing tourism.”
