Expect the rail system to be back for more money
The Ige administration has negligently failed to collect the hotel tax from transient vacation rental operators (such as AirBnB and others).
The new 1 percent hotel tax will not produce the anticipated funds for the Honolulu rail system. Expect the rail system to be back for more money.
The Honolulu rail system will operate at a loss. Expect hotel taxes collected on Maui to be used to operate the Honolulu rail system.
Shame on Maui legislators who vote to take Maui hotel taxes to pay for the Honolulu rail system.
