Notice of Public Hearing

HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Proposed Amendments to Chapter 4-71, Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR),
"Plant and Non-Domestic Animal Quarantine, Non-Domestic Animal Import Rules," Including Amendment Banning Import of Dangerous, Wild Non-Domestic Animals for Performance or Exhibition in Circuses or Carnivals

Notice is hereby given pursuant to Chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), and section 150A-9, HRS, that the Hawaii Department of Agriculture (Department or HDOA) will hold public hearings to receive testimony on proposed amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules ("HAR"), Title 4, Subtitle 6, Chapter 71:

Chapter 4-71 - "Plant and Non-Domestic Animal Quarantine
Non-Domestic Animal Import Rules"

The primary focus of these proposed amendments is to prohibit import of dangerous wild animals for short-term exhibition and performance in circuses, carnivals, and state fairs on the basis of the potential risk to public health and safety. The proposed amendments identify certain species as dangerous wild animals that will be prohibited import for short-term circus or carnival exhibition or performance, but that may be allowed import for zoo exhibition and for short-term commercial filming, subject to permit conditions adequate to address any associated risks. The individual species subject to the above prohibition and restriction include, but are not limited to, lions, tigers, bears, elephants, non-human primates, alligators, and crocodiles.  (§§4-71-2, 4-71-3, 4-71-6.5, HAR). Further amendment will be proposed to clarify the exemption that allows import for short-term commercial filming.

The proposed amendments will also change the import list placement of two animal species:  (a) the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, currently allowed import only for research, to allow its import for aquaculture production; and (b) the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, currently allowed import for research, to allow its import as feed for various insectivorous animals at Honolulu Zoo (§4-71-6.5, HAR).

In addition to general housekeeping changes, the proposed amendments will, among other things, do the following: (1) Specify risk to animal or public health and safety associated with import of a species as an additional basis for restricting or prohibiting import of specific non-domestic animals (§4-71-1, HAR); (2) Clarify that violation of permit conditions may result in a citation or cancellation of a permit, or both (§4-71-3); and (3) Clarify that short-term special permits for import of unlisted animals are subject to the same general safeguard requirements and maximum time periods for permit approval that apply to short term permits for import of animals on the lists of conditionally approved and restricted animals (§§4-71-3, 4-71-4.1, HAR). 

The proposed amendments will also amend §4-71-6.5, HAR, titled "Permitted introductions", to do the following: (1) Allow government agencies to import animals on the List of Conditionally Approved Animals, which are currently allowed import for individual possession, businesses, and institutions; (2) Expand the purposes for which animals on the List of Restricted Animals (Part B) may be imported from currently allowed purposes (i.e., private and commercial use, including zoological parks, or aquaculture production) to include government use; (3) Replace the term "municipal" zoos with the broader term "government" zoos; (4) Clarify that, in addition to universities and government agencies, other institutions may import restricted list animals for research, and that universities and government agencies may import restricted list animals for medical and scientific purposes as well as for research, as determined by the Board of Agriculture (Board); (5) Clarify that permits may be approved by the Board chairperson, as well as by the HDOA branch chief or Board, as specified by rules; (6) Clarify that site approval is required prior to the issuance of any permit issued for import of animals on the restricted lists and unlisted animals; and (7) Clarify that when a permit to import a restricted list or unlisted animal allows for transfer or sale, a proposed transferee must satisfy conditions for transfer and obtain a permit for possession of the animal.

Effect of Certain Amendments on Small Business: (1) The proposed amendment to ban import of dangerous wild animals for short-term circus-type performance or exhibition will apply to any potential importer of these animals for live performance or exhibition in a carnival or circus, whether the importer is a small business, big business, or government (county fairs), because of the inherent risk to public health and safety in the live entertainment situation. This proposed import ban may affect potential importers, including small business importers, in a potentially adverse way.  Animals that are not "dangerous wild animals" can still be imported for live entertainment at events like the 50th State Fair.  (2) The proposed amendments to change the import list placement of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, to allow its import for aquaculture production, do not adversely affect small business and are strongly supported by small aquacultural businesses. (3) The proposed amendments to change the import list placement of the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, to allow its import as feed for various insectivorous animals at Honolulu Zoo do not adversely affect small business.

The proposed amendments will also amend §4-71-6.5, HAR, titled "Permitted introductions", to do the following: (1) Allow government agencies to import animals on the List of Conditionally Approved Animals, which are currently allowed import for individual possession, businesses, and institutions; (2) Expand the purposes for which animals on the List of Restricted Animals (Part B) may be imported from currently allowed purposes (i.e., private and commercial use, including zoological parks, or aquaculture production) to include government use; (3) Replace the term "municipal" zoos with the broader term "government" zoos; (4) Clarify that, in addition to universities and government agencies, other institutions may import restricted list animals for research, and that universities and government agencies may import restricted list animals for medical and scientific purposes as well as for research, as determined by the Board of Agriculture (Board); (5) Clarify that permits may be approved by the Board chairperson, as well as by the HDOA branch chief or Board, as specified by rules; (6) Clarify that site approval is required prior to the issuance of any permit issued for import of animals on the restricted lists and unlisted animals; and (7) Clarify that when a permit to import a restricted list or unlisted animal allows for transfer or sale, a proposed transferee must satisfy conditions for transfer and obtain a permit for possession of the animal.

Effect of Certain Amendments on Small Business: (1) The proposed amendment to ban import of dangerous wild animals for short-term circus-type performance or exhibition will apply to any potential importer of these animals for live performance or exhibition in a carnival or circus, whether the importer is a small business, big business, or government (county fairs), because of the inherent risk to public health and safety in the live entertainment situation. This proposed import ban may affect potential importers, including small business importers, in a potentially adverse way.  Animals that are not "dangerous wild animals" can still be imported for live entertainment at events like the 50th State Fair.  (2) The proposed amendments to change the import list placement of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, to allow its import for aquaculture production, do not adversely affect small business and are strongly supported by small aquacultural businesses. (3) The proposed amendments to change the import list placement of the house cricket, Acheta domesticus, to allow its import as feed for various insectivorous animals at Honolulu Zoo do not adversely affect small business.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

APPLICATION OF HAWAIIAN ELECTRIC COMPANY, INC.
FOR APPROVAL TO CONSTRUCT AN UNDERGROUND AND
OVERHEAD SUBTRANSMISSION LINE

Docket No. 2016-0416

The STATE OF HAWAII PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION ("commission"), pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §§ 269-27.5 and 269-27.6(a), HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold a public hearing relating to the Application of Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. ("HECO"), filed on December 9, 2016, for commission approval to construct a 46 kilovolt ("kV") subtransmission line (the "Project") both above and below the ground near the Ala Wai canal in the Waikiki area of Oahu.  The public hearing will be held as follows:

Tuesday, April 4, 2017, at 6:00 p.m.
Ala Wai Elementary School Cafeteria
503 Kamoku Street
Honolulu, Hawaii   96826

The Project was initiated at the request of the Department of Land and Natural Resources ("DLNR") in order to accommodate the planned dredging of the Ala Wai canal scheduled to begin in June of 2018.  Presently, HECO maintains two 46 kV lines that traverse across and under the Ala Wai canal near the Company’s Waikiki substation, and provide power for two of HECO’s three circuits in Waikiki (the Kamoku 43 circuit and the Pukele 5 circuit).  These two 46 kV lines are currently buried in the canal at between approximately 16 to 8.5 feet below mean sea level. At these depths, the lines are vulnerable to damage from maintenance dredging operations.  The scope of the Project includes: (1) construction of 46 kV cables underground and overhead from the Waikiki substation, under the Ala Wai canal, and two utility riser poles on the mauka side of the canal; and (2) the acquisition of easements, as needed, for the cables.  The Project’s estimated cost is approximately $13.9 million.
Under the Project, the existing 46 kV lines in the canal will be removed and new 46 kV underground lines will be installed beneath the canal at a depth of approximately 50 feet below mean sea level, which should avoid interference with future dredging operations.  In addition to relocating the 46 kV lines, the Project will replace the lines with higher standard polymer insulated cables, which are more cost effective and require less maintenance.  The new location of the lines will also enhance maintenance accessibility by removing them from the canal floor and placing them in conduits drilled deep beneath the canal.  Additionally, the Project involves a small amount of 46 kV line overhead construction, which consists of replacing two new utility riser poles in the existing line (the riser poles will be installed on University Avenue and Kamoku Street).
Copies of HECO’s Application are available for public review through the commission’s electronic Document Management System, accessible at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/.  In addition, copies of HECO’s Application are also available for review by contacting HECO [(808) 548-7311], the commission’s Honolulu Office [(808) 586-2020], or the Division of Consumer Advocacy [(808) 586-2800]. 
All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing to state their views on HECO’s Application.  Statements may also be mailed to the Public Utilities Commission, 465 South King Street, Room No. 103, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, or emailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  All written statements should reference Docket No. 20160416.  Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made if requested reasonably in advance by contacting the commission’s Honolulu Office.
