Gov. Green extends emergency proclamation for Maui wildfire recovery efforts
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Gov. Josh Green has extended his emergency proclamation on wildfires to continue state support for Maui’s recovery efforts through the beginning of next year.
The proclamation is now in effect until Jan. 5, 2024.
The proclamation provides exemptions for hotels and condos to free up units for fire survivors, allowing them to house displaced residents for longer than allowed in governing documents.
It will also waive fees for fire evacuees trying to obtain state documents and allows businesses with liquor licenses that burned in the fire to transfer those licenses to new locations.
The proclamation also bars price increases on commodities like milk, ice and rental cars.
On Tuesday, Governor Green will join HNN’s “Spotlight Now” to take your questions on the wildfire recovery, the economy, and more.
