Environmental groups frustrated by Kauai mayor’s recommendation to defer Bill 2491

Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr.’s recommendation that the Kauai County Council defer Bill 2491 for two months stirred up a wide range of reactions Wednesday.

A release sent out by StopPoisoningParadise.org said the mayor’s presentation during the council meeting highlighted an “ill-considered analysis and lack of willingness to act.”

“All this rhetoric about ‘coming together to get educated and better understand what is going on’ … it just doesn’t make sense to those of us in the community who have been raising concerns for years, or to council members who have spent the past months working very hard to think through the technical details of the bill,” Fern Rosenstiel, a bill proponent, said in the release.
