“Aloha Chair Kahele, Vice Chair Keith-Agaran, and members of the Senate Water and Land Committee. I’m writing in strong support of SB1068, which appropriates funding for Na Ala Hele, the State’s Trail and Access Program. Keeping up with the increasing impacts on our beloved hiking trails is a constant challenge. This bill would provide critical funds for improving access and maintaining state controlled recreational trails statewide and promoting hiker safety, hiker etiquette education, and outreach. Please support SB1068 and pass this bill.”
