ACTION ALERTOK, I’m trying to send out notices in groups so as not to overwhelm you. this notice is about 2 BILLS ON PRISON CONSTRUCTION in 3 different committeeson Thursday 2.12 and Friday 2.13.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2015
1:15 p.m.
ROOM 229

COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC SAFETY, INTERGOVERNMENTAL & MILITARY AFFAIRS

Sen. Will Espero, Chair
Sen. Rosalyn Baker, Vice Chair

SB1268   OCCC; HALAWA; CONSTRUCTION; GO BONDS; APPROPRIATION ($)                     PSM, WAM
http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2015/bills/SB1268_.pdf

RELATING TO PUBLIC SAFETY.

Requires the department of public safety to construct a multi-story correctional facility at the Halawa correctional facility to replace the existing Oahu community correctional center. Authorizes the issuance of general obligation bonds and appropriates funds for the planning, design, and construction of the multi-story correctional facility.  ESPERO, Baker

This bill is for a 1,500 bed multi-story jail to replace OCCC (think Fed Detention Ctr at airport). State would sell OCCC site, may issue GO bonds, and “may” enter into a public-private partnership to plan, design, and build. (Interesting that they left the public private partnership phrase out of the description of the bill, yeah?!)
