HONOLULU – Hawaii lawmakers aren’t passing legislation that would have helped clear the way for construction of an undersea electricity cable between Hawaii’s islands.
The measure would have made electricity customers pay the bill for the unknown cost of the planned cable connecting proposed wind farms on islands of Molokai and Lanai to the population center in Honolulu.
The legislation stalled in conference committee last week and died for the year when the Legislature adjourned Thursday without taking further action.
