Senator Kahele helps “deliver” the UH-Hilo Pharmacy Building

 

The state Legislature’s budget conference committee has agreed on a proposal to fund a permanent building for the University of Hawaii at Hilo’s Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy, legislators and university officials said Friday. The agreement reached by House and Senate conferees totals $33 million, to be funded by $28 million in general obligation bonds and $5 million in revenue bonds. “We’ll have a better chance of accreditation, that’s the number-one thing,” said Jerry Chang, UH-Hilo’s director of University Relations. “And construction of the project will make sure that all college of pharmacy programs will be on one campus”. The college was established in 2007, awarded its first degrees in 2011, and will graduate its fourth class in May. A site for the new building has been chosen at University Park mauka of the main UHH campus. The design by Rob Iopa of WCIT Architecture in Honolulu is almost complete, according to Chang.

Senate District One Receives $52 Million in Funding

 

Yesterday the Hawai‘i State Senate approved on final reading HB1700, the state supplemental budget bill, which includes nearly $52 million for Hawai‘i Island’s Senatorial District 1 consisting of South Hilo, including portions of Pauka‘a, Pi‘ihonua, Kaumana, Waiakea, and Keaukaha, represented by Senator Gilbert Kahele.

 

“I fought to secure funding for our district so that our communities are maintained and that we remain economically viable,” said Senator Kahele. “Funding these projects and programs improve the quality of life for our residents so that we can enjoy time with our family and friends. I am pleased that my colleagues and I were able to report a final compromise bill out of the money committees last week that benefits all of Hawai‘i and that the full Senate could agree on.”
