Hawaii Tourism Authority dramatic budget cut bill nearing last House vote

Written by Scott Foster

HONOLULU, HI — The final version of the bill which would make significant changes to the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s (HTA) budget is one step away from being sent to the governor for his signature. Unlikely, but the bill could still fail during the full House floor vote after the changes made during a conference committee last week. Should it pass, Governor David Ige could veto the legislation.

The original bill was far more draconian and HTA could have lost a whopping 44 percent of its total budget.
