State Rep Asks DOT to Stop Superferry

Rep. Hermina Morita Rep. Hermina Morita

HONOLULU (KHNL) - State Representative Hermina Morita is requesting the State Department of Transportation to order the Hawaii Superferry to halt service to Kauai pursuant to last week's Supreme Court decision.

"The use of the State's harbor facilities, including Nawiliwili Harbor, is not appropriate at this time," said Rep. Morita.  "Moreover, until all legal matters are resolved or there is further guidance from the Hawaii Supreme Court, the DOT needs to respect the rule of the law."

Morita claims the DOT disregarded the law when it approved the Superferry's operations without requiring an environmental review.
