Read Committee Report:

The EIS exemption was removed, but this is stil about building a 1,250 jail/prison either in Halawa or on a smaller footprint on current site in Kalihi (high rise prison).

CAP is still opposed to building without a full examination of alternatives and a comprehensive PUBLIC review of who is currently in OCCC and MCCC.

Kat is still on Hawai`i Island. Great Sociological conference this past weekend and speaking at HI Comm College and UH Hilo tomorrow. Back on Wed for hearing!
