LIHU‘E — A total of over $223 million in capital-improvement-project funds have been allocated to Kaua‘i in the final version of the state budget that passed out of the Senate and House conference committee on April 19.

The final version of the state’s fiscal year 2022 budget (House Bill 200) covers July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2023, and will bring funding for schools, park complexes, port improvements and infrastructure improvements.

“In working with the Kauaʻi delegation — Representatives James Kunane Tokioka, Nadine K. Nakamura and Dee Morikawa — we were able to provide a large amount of monies to address infrastructure issues on Kauaʻi,” said Senate President Ron Kouchi of Lihu‘e in a statement. “These projects will help to stimulate our economy while also improving the quality of life for all who call the Garden Isle home.”   (continued here)
