Hawaii lawmakers to get update on public land body

HONOLULU — Hawaii state lawmakers are due to hold an informational briefing next week on the status of a new body created to generate revenue from public lands.

The Senate and House water and land committees are due to hold a joint meeting on Aug. 30.

The Public Land Development Corp. was created to generate revenue that may be used to offset the regulatory functions of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie earlier this year signed legislation that set up the corporation as an arm of the DLNR.
