Chair: Rep. Sylvia Luke, Vice Chairs: Rep. Scott Y. Nishimoto and Rep. Aaron Ling Johanson, and Committee Members:
The League of Women Voters of Hawaii supports SB 2442, a bill to appropriate funding for the rental housing trust fund to build affordable rental housing projects, including projects with micro units, family units, and elder housing units.
The League of Women Voters has long supported policies to provide a decent home and a suitable living environment for every American family. The proposed bill, including funding for micro-units, units for elderly persons, and families meeting certain specified income criteria, will be an effective measure to reduce the recognized serious housing shortage in our state. It addresses the needs of a broad segment of low-income people.
We urge you to pass this bill.Thank you for the opportunity to submit testimony.
