Senate Bill SB2608 Amended

Tech Drones Hawaii

Jumped into the deep end today and spoke in opposition of Senate Bill 2608. I struggled for words but I would like to think I contributed to the consideration of model aircraft to be exempt from this bill effectively keeping us where we currently are from the civil perspective. At least we can still innovate in this industry here in Hawaii. Senator Hee introduced this bill originally with language too broad which HPD already addressed. I think it was great to have HPD support as well. I would like to thank Senator Hee for the openness in amending this bill.
