Governor’s statement on hearing officer’s TMT order

Posted on Jul 26, 2017 in Featured, Latest Department News, Newsroom, Office of the Governor Press Releases

I want to thank hearings officer and former Judge Riki May Amano for her diligent work in making a recommendation to the Board of Land and Natural Resources regarding the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project at Mauna Kea.

We are in the process of reviewing the conditions included in the decision.

Regardless of the BLNR’s ultimate decision, I support the co-existence of astronomy and culture on Mauna Kea along with better management of the mountain.
