The following item is Number One in the 2020 OHA Legislative Package, as outlined in the OHA’s in-house newspaper, Ka Wai Ola, January, 2020, edition:

Ensuring Hawaiian Expertise in Land Use and Resource Management

For many, the conflict over Maunakea is emblematic of the government's continual failure to meaningfully incorporate Native Hawaiian perspectives into decisions impacting the 'aina.

This measure would better ensure that Native Hawaiian rights, values and cultural expertise are reflected in land use and resource management decisions going forward by:

1) ensuring that four members of both the Land Use Commission and the Board of Land and Natural Resources are selected from lists submitted to the Governor by OHA; and

2) reinforcing the existing requirement that members of certain state boards and commissions attend a Native Hawaiian Law and Public Trust training course.

The BLNR is comprised of seven members plus the DLNR Director.

The LUC is comprised of nine members.
