NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
APPLICATION OF HAWAIIAN ELECTRIC COMPANY, INC.
FOR APPROVAL TO CONSTRUCT AN OVERHEAD SUBTRANSMISSION LINE

Docket No. 2013-0423

The STATE OF HAWAII PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION ("Commission"), pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §§ 269-27.5 and 269-27.6(a), HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold a public hearing relating to the Application of Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. ("HECO"), filed on December 12, 2013, for Commission approval to construct an overhead 46 kilovolt ("kV") sub-transmission line originating from the Na Pua Makani Wind Project in the Kahuku area of Oahu.  The public hearing will be held as follows:

Thursday, February 2, 2017, at 6:00 p.m.

Kahuku High & Intermediate School Cafeteria

The overhead line extension was initiated at the request of HECO in order to accommodate the interconnection of the Na Pua Makani Wind Project (the "Project"), located in Kahuku, Oahu. The Commission approved a power purchase agreement between HECO and Na Pua Makani Power Partners, LLC, under which HECO will purchase electric energy generated at the Project. In order to interconnect the Project to HECO’s grid, HECO must construct a 46 kV overhead line extension between the Project and the existing Kooalu-Kahuku 46 kV circuit.
The overhead line extension work will consist of installing approximately twenty- three guyed and self-supported steel poles, a manually operated, lockable, group operated switch, and approximately 4,900 feet of three-phase 336.4 KCM ACC
46 kV overhead conductors. 
Copies of HECO’s Application are available for public review through the Commission’s electronic Document Management System, accessible at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/.  The proposed 46 kV line extension is also more thoroughly explained in HECO’s "Amended and Restated Power Purchase Agreement Dated August 12, 2016 and Interconnection Requirements Study," which was filed on September 15, 2016, in this docket. In addition, copies of HECO’s Application are also available for review by contacting HECO [(808) 548-7311], the Commission’s Honolulu Office [(808) 586-2020], or the Division of Consumer Advocacy [(808) 586-2800]. 
All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing to state their views on HECO’s Application.  Statements may also be mailed to the Public Utilities Commission, 465 South King Street, Room No. 103, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, or

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN of the hearing to be held in the County of Kauai by the Land Use Commission of the State of Hawaii to consider a petition for change of district boundaries as provided for in Section 205-4 and Section 201H-38, Hawaii Revised Statutes, as amended: 

DATE, TIME AND PLACE
February 8, 2017   10:00 a.m.

DOCKET NUMBER:    A17-802

PETITIONER:

County of Kauai, Housing Agency
4444 Rice Street, Suite 330
Lihue, Hawaii 96766

TAX MAP KEY NO.:  (4) 2-1-001:054

CHANGE REQUESTED: To reclassify approximately 75 acres of land situate at Eleele,  Island and County of Kauai, State of Hawaii, to allow for a residential development on the property and to utilize the density for up to 550 residential units (single-family and multi-family) to provide needed affordable housing supply for Kauai.  All units will be affordable as defined by Chapter 7A of the Kauai County Code, and offered for sale or rent to households who earn no more than 140% of the Kauai median household income. The proposed project is also anticipated to include a community park, a water storage tank, bike and pedestrian paths, and landscaped areas. Petitioner is using the property for the Lima Ola project.  Because all units will be affordable, Lima Ola qualifies as an affordable housing project under Section 201H-38, Hawaii Revised Statutes, as amended.  Petitioner is seeking exemption from State and County land use regulations and is proceeding under the fast tracking procedures provided under HRS §201H-38.
Maps showing the proposed district boundaries and copies of the Hawaii Land Use Commission Rules governing the above petition may be inspected at the offices of the Kauai County Planning Department 4444 Rice Street, #473, Lihue, Hawaii 96766 during office hours from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except legal holidays) and at the offices of the State Land Use Commission 235 South Beretania Street, Room 406, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 during office hours from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except legal holidays).
All persons who have some property interest in the land, who lawfully reside on the land, or who otherwise can demonstrate that they will be so directly and immediately affected by the proposed change that their interest in the proceeding is clearly distinguishable from that of the general public shall be admitted as parties upon timely application for intervention. 
All other persons may apply to the Commission for leave to intervene as parties.  Leave to intervene shall be freely granted, provided that the Commission or its hearing officer, if one is appointed, may deny an application to intervene when in the Commission’s or hearing officer’s sound discretion it appears that: (1) the position of the applicant for intervention concerning the proposed change is substantially the same as the position of a party already admitted to the proceeding, and (2) the admission of additional parties will render the proceedings inefficient and unmanageable.  A person whose application to intervene is denied may appeal such denial pursuant to Section 91-14, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Petitions to intervene were due fifteen (15) days after the publication of the Notice of Intent to File a Land Use District Boundary Petition, pursuant to Sections 15-15-97(b)(3) and 15-15-97(e) of the Hawaii Land Use Commission Rules. 
All persons or individuals wishing to present testimony, orally or in writing, are requested to notify the Commission prior to the commencement of the hearing. Together with other witnesses that the Commission may desire to hear at the hearing, a representative of a citizen or a community group wishing to express the views of such citizen or community group concerning the proposed boundary amendment, is requested to notify the Commission prior to the commencement of the hearing and may be requested to submit written evidence of authorization to represent the citizen or community group. It is suggested that such notification be submitted to the Commission by January 25, 2017.
Any party to the proceeding may be represented by legal counsel.  An individual may appear on the individual’s own behalf, or a member of a partnership may represent the partnership, or an officer or authorized employee of a corporation, trust, or other legal entity may represent the corporation, trust, or other legal entity. 
For persons requesting special accommodations due to disabilities, please contact the State Land Use Commission at 587-3822 or notify the State Land Use Commission in writing at P.O. Box 2359, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96804-2359, at least 10 days before the scheduled meeting.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS

APPLICATION OF HAWAII ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY, INC.
FOR APPROVAL OF RATE INCREASES AND
REVISED RATE SCHEDULES AND RULES

Docket No. 2015-0170

The PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION of the STATE OF HAWAII ("Commission") pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes ("HRS") §§ 269-12 and 269-16, HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold public hearings relating to the Application of HAWAII ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY, INC. ("HELCO"), filed on September 19, 2016, for Approval of Rate Increases and Revised Rate Schedules and Rules ("Application").

The Commission will hold public hearings as follows:

Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 5:30 p.m.
Hilo High School Cafeteria
556 Waianuenue Avenue
Hilo, Hawaii 96720

Wednesday, December 14, 2016, 5:30 p.m.
West Hawaii Civic Center
County Council Chambers
74-5044 Ane Keohokalole Hwy
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii 96740

The Commission will investigate whether the proposed revenue increases, changes in rate schedules and rules, and other matters proposed in HELCO’s Application are just and reasonable. 
HELCO is the provider of electric utility service for the island of Hawaii. For any increase in HELCO’s rates and charges that may be approved by the Commission, HELCO states that the total revenue requirement for the 2016 test year will not exceed the increase of $54,493,000 (21.1%) "over revenues at present rates."  HELCO states that the increase in rates and charges to be finally approved by the Commission, if any, may be higher or lower than the proposed rates and charges noted in HELCO’s Application.
HELCO proposes different scenarios for rate relief, depending on the outcome of HELCO’s proposed acquisition of the Hamakua Energy Partners, L.P. ("Hamakua Energy") power facility ("Hamakua Facility") in the ongoing Commission proceedings in Docket No. 2016-0033 ("Hamakua Application").
First, if the Hamakua Facility remains independently owned and operated, HELCO seeks the Commission’s approval of a general increase in revenues of $39,054,000 (14.2%) over "revenues at present rates" (or $19,291,000 (6.5%) over "revenues at current effective rates").  HELCO’s requested increase is based on a revenue requirement of $314,791,000 for a normalized 2016 test year, which is based on fuel oil prices in 2016 and an 8.44% rate of return (which incorporates a return on common equity of 10.60%) on HELCO’s average rate base.
Second, although speculative at this time, HELCO requests that if the Commission should approve the Hamakua Application and HELCO owns and operates the Hamakua Facility, HELCO then seeks the Commission’s approval of a general increase in revenues of $54,493,000 (21.1%) over "revenues at present rates" (or $34,748,000 (12.5%) over "revenues at current effective rates").  HELCO’s requested increase is based on a revenue requirement of $312,413,000 for a normalized 2016 test year, which is based on fuel oil prices in 2016 and an 8.44% rate of return (which incorporates a return on common equity of 10.60%) on HELCO’s average rate base.
HELCO proposes several "revenue adjustments" "depending on when/if the [Hamakua] Facility acquisition closes and when the interim decision and order for this rate case is issued."
In addition to the request for a general rate increase, and pursuant to HRS § 269-16(c), HELCO seeks approval of a temporary general rate increase of "$9,935,000 in annual revenues" in the event that (a) the Commission elects to approve HELCO’s proposed acquisition of the Hamakua Facility, and (b) such approval occurs before any interim decision is filed in this docket ("Temporary General Rate Increase").
Alternatively, based on HELCO’s assumptions that (a) the Commission issues an interim decision in this rate proceeding, pending a final decision at a later date, and (b) the Commission has not yet issued any decision to approve the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033, HELCO then requests that any such interim decision be based on HELCO’s revenue requirement of $314,791,000 whereby the Hamakua Facility remains under independent ownership and operation.
Next, based on HELCO’s additional assumptions that (a) the Commission elects to approve the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033, and (b) such approval occurs after the Commission issues any interim decision which would be based on the revenue requirement of $314,791,000, HELCO then proposes a Hamakua Energy Step Adjustment of negative $2,378,000 to achieve a revenue requirement of $312,413,000. In such case, HELCO states that there would be no need for its proposed Temporary General Rate Increase.
Third, in any final decision in this docket, HELCO requests that the Commission approve any final increase in rates to achieve its requested revenue requirement (i.e., either $314,791,000 or $312,413,000, depending on the outcome of the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033).
As part of its Application, HELCO proposes a Performance Incentives Mechanism Adjustment tariff to measure and link certain revenues to its performance in the areas of customer service, reliability, and communication relating to the rooftop solar interconnection process. HELCO proposes a calculation of revenue adjustments "based on respective measured performance parameters compared to established targets" and HELCO "would be rewarded or penalized according to the amount it exceeds or misses the targets, within a defined limit of revenue exposure."
HELCOalso proposes certain modifications to its Energy Cost Adjustment Clause, which include: (a) "widening the target heat rates deadbands"; (b) "equally sharing between [HELCO] and its customers (i.e., 50/50 split) higher or lower realized fuel costs based on the amount that actual heat rates that fall outside the target heat rate deadbands"; and (c) "adding a trigger for redetermination of target heat rates when calculated heat rates are outside of their respective deadbands for significant periods or are expected to remain outside of their respective deadbands for indefinite periods."
With regard to its rules, HELCO requests approval to modify the "Service Establishment and Reconnection Charge to allow [HELCO] to assess a $25.00 charge for same day connection/reconnection service" (Rule 7), and approval to increase the "Returned Payment Charge from $16.00 to $25.00 per returned check or returned payment" (Rule 8).
With respect to the allocation and implementation of the proposed rate increase, HELCO "proposes to allocate the increase in electric sales revenue in the same percentage to each rate class’s respective revenues at current effective rates[.]" HELCO also requests that should the Commission issue an interim decision, any interim increase in its revenues at current effective rates "be structured as surcharges for the various classes based on a percentage of the customer’s base revenue charges[.]"
HELCO "requests that the rate design, modifications to the [Energy Cost Adjustment Clause], [Performance Incentives Mechanism] Adjustment tariff, and rule changes proposed" be implemented in the Commission’s final decision, "except for the changes in the monthly allocation factors applicable to target revenue and the basis for the monthly allocation factors in the [Revenue Balancing Account], which [HELCO] requests be implemented" in the Commission’s interim decision.
At the public hearings, the Commission will receive in-person testimony from the general public regarding: (1) HELCO’s Application and proposed general rate increase and revised rate schedules and rules, pursuant to HRS § 269-16(b), and (2) HELCO’s proposed Temporary General Rate Increase, pursuant to HRS § 269-16(c).
The purpose of these public hearings is to listen to the views expressed by the general public. All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearings to state their views on HELCO’s Application, orally, in writing, or both. So that all in attendance will have the opportunity to speak at the public hearings, the Commission may impose time limits for each person’s testimony.
In addition, written statements may be mailed to the Commission at 465 South King Street, Room 103, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96813, or sent by electronic mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Written statements should reference Docket No. 2015-0170, and include the author’s name and the entity or organization that the author represents.
Any motions to intervene or participate in this proceeding must comply with the applicable provisions of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure Before the Public Utilities Commission, Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 6, Chapter 61, and must be filed with the Commission at its Honolulu Office by December 27, 2016.
After the conclusion of the public hearings, at a later date to be determined, the Commission will conduct an evidentiary hearing with the Parties, and thereafter issue a decision on HELCO’s Application in accordance with HRS § 269-16.
The foregoing is a brief summary of the proposals in HELCO’s Application.  HELCO’s Application is available for public review through the Commission’s electronic Document Management System, at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/.  Copies of HELCO’s Application are also available for review by contacting HELCO, the Commission’s Hawaii District Office [(808) 974-4533] or its Honolulu Office [(808) 586-2020], or the Consumer Advocate [(808) 586-2800].

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS

APPLICATION OF HAWAII ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY, INC.
FOR APPROVAL OF RATE INCREASES AND
REVISED RATE SCHEDULES AND RULES

Docket No. 2015-0170

The PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION of the STATE OF HAWAII ("Commission") pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes ("HRS") §§ 269-12 and 269-16, HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold public hearings relating to the Application of HAWAII ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY, INC. ("HELCO"), filed on September 19, 2016, for Approval of Rate Increases and Revised Rate Schedules and Rules ("Application").

The Commission will hold public hearings as follows:

Tuesday, December 13, 2016, 5:30 p.m.
Hilo High School Cafeteria
556 Waianuenue Avenue
Hilo, Hawaii 96720

Wednesday, December 14, 2016, 5:30 p.m.
West Hawaii Civic Center
County Council Chambers
74-5044 Ane Keohokalole Hwy
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii 96740

The Commission will investigate whether the proposed revenue increases, changes in rate schedules and rules, and other matters proposed in HELCO’s Application are just and reasonable. 
HELCO is the provider of electric utility service for the island of Hawaii. For any increase in HELCO’s rates and charges that may be approved by the Commission, HELCO states that the total revenue requirement for the 2016 test year will not exceed the increase of $54,493,000 (21.1%) "over revenues at present rates."  HELCO states that the increase in rates and charges to be finally approved by the Commission, if any, may be higher or lower than the proposed rates and charges noted in HELCO’s Application.
HELCO proposes different scenarios for rate relief, depending on the outcome of HELCO’s proposed acquisition of the Hamakua Energy Partners, L.P. ("Hamakua Energy") power facility ("Hamakua Facility") in the ongoing Commission proceedings in Docket No. 2016-0033 ("Hamakua Application").
First, if the Hamakua Facility remains independently owned and operated, HELCO seeks the Commission’s approval of a general increase in revenues of $39,054,000 (14.2%) over "revenues at present rates" (or $19,291,000 (6.5%) over "revenues at current effective rates").  HELCO’s requested increase is based on a revenue requirement of $314,791,000 for a normalized 2016 test year, which is based on fuel oil prices in 2016 and an 8.44% rate of return (which incorporates a return on common equity of 10.60%) on HELCO’s average rate base.
Second, although speculative at this time, HELCO requests that if the Commission should approve the Hamakua Application and HELCO owns and operates the Hamakua Facility, HELCO then seeks the Commission’s approval of a general increase in revenues of $54,493,000 (21.1%) over "revenues at present rates" (or $34,748,000 (12.5%) over "revenues at current effective rates").  HELCO’s requested increase is based on a revenue requirement of $312,413,000 for a normalized 2016 test year, which is based on fuel oil prices in 2016 and an 8.44% rate of return (which incorporates a return on common equity of 10.60%) on HELCO’s average rate base.
HELCO proposes several "revenue adjustments" "depending on when/if the [Hamakua] Facility acquisition closes and when the interim decision and order for this rate case is issued."
In addition to the request for a general rate increase, and pursuant to HRS § 269-16(c), HELCO seeks approval of a temporary general rate increase of "$9,935,000 in annual revenues" in the event that (a) the Commission elects to approve HELCO’s proposed acquisition of the Hamakua Facility, and (b) such approval occurs before any interim decision is filed in this docket ("Temporary General Rate Increase").
Alternatively, based on HELCO’s assumptions that (a) the Commission issues an interim decision in this rate proceeding, pending a final decision at a later date, and (b) the Commission has not yet issued any decision to approve the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033, HELCO then requests that any such interim decision be based on HELCO’s revenue requirement of $314,791,000 whereby the Hamakua Facility remains under independent ownership and operation.
Next, based on HELCO’s additional assumptions that (a) the Commission elects to approve the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033, and (b) such approval occurs after the Commission issues any interim decision which would be based on the revenue requirement of $314,791,000, HELCO then proposes a Hamakua Energy Step Adjustment of negative $2,378,000 to achieve a revenue requirement of $312,413,000. In such case, HELCO states that there would be no need for its proposed Temporary General Rate Increase.
Third, in any final decision in this docket, HELCO requests that the Commission approve any final increase in rates to achieve its requested revenue requirement (i.e., either $314,791,000 or $312,413,000, depending on the outcome of the Hamakua Application in Docket No. 2016-0033).
As part of its Application, HELCO proposes a Performance Incentives Mechanism Adjustment tariff to measure and link certain revenues to its performance in the areas of customer service, reliability, and communication relating to the rooftop solar interconnection process. HELCO proposes a calculation of revenue adjustments "based on respective measured performance parameters compared to established targets" and HELCO "would be rewarded or penalized according to the amount it exceeds or misses the targets, within a defined limit of revenue exposure."
HELCO also proposes certain modifications to its Energy Cost Adjustment Clause, which include: (a) "widening the target heat rates deadbands"; (b) "equally sharing between [HELCO] and its customers (i.e., 50/50 split) higher or lower realized fuel costs based on the amount that actual heat rates that fall outside the target heat rate deadbands"; and (c) "adding a trigger for redetermination of target heat rates when calculated heat rates are outside of their respective deadbands for significant periods or are expected to remain outside of their respective deadbands for indefinite periods."
With regard to its rules, HELCO requests approval to modify the "Service Establishment and Reconnection Charge to allow [HELCO] to assess a $25.00 charge for same day connection/reconnection service" (Rule 7), and approval to increase the "Returned Payment Charge from $16.00 to $25.00 per returned check or returned payment" (Rule 8).
With respect to the allocation and implementation of the proposed rate increase, HELCO "proposes to allocate the increase in electric sales revenue in the same percentage to each rate class’s respective revenues at current effective rates[.]" HELCO also requests that should the Commission issue an interim decision, any interim increase in its revenues at current effective rates "be structured as surcharges for the various classes based on a percentage of the customer’s base revenue charges[.]"
HELCO "requests that the rate design, modifications to the [Energy Cost Adjustment Clause], [Performance Incentives Mechanism] Adjustment tariff, and rule changes proposed" be implemented in the Commission’s final decision, "except for the changes in the monthly allocation factors applicable to target revenue and the basis for the monthly allocation factors in the [Revenue Balancing Account], which [HELCO] requests be implemented" in the Commission’s interim decision.
At the public hearings, the Commission will receive in-person testimony from the general public regarding: (1) HELCO’s Application and proposed general rate increase and revised rate schedules and rules, pursuant to HRS § 269-16(b), and (2) HELCO’s proposed Temporary General Rate Increase, pursuant to HRS § 269-16(c).
The purpose of these public hearings is to listen to the views expressed by the general public. All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearings to state their views on HELCO’s Application, orally, in writing, or both. So that all in attendance will have the opportunity to speak at the public hearings, the Commission may impose time limits for each person’s testimony.
In addition, written statements may be mailed to the Commission at 465 South King Street, Room 103, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96813, or sent by electronic mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Written statements should reference Docket No. 2015-0170, and include the author’s name and the entity or organization that the author represents.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS

Pursuant to Chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation (DOT) Highways Division, will hold public hearings relating to proposed amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 19-135, entitled "PERIODIC SAFETY INSPECTION OF MOPEDS."  The primary purpose of these amendments is to implement Act 200, SLH 2016, which requires mopeds to have annual safety inspections, be registered and issued a license plate.
The significant proposed amendments include:
§19-135-3: Two new definitions are added and two others are amended. The definition of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) has the effective date of the standards changed from April 1, 1985 to October 1, 2016. The definition of "Periodic Moped Inspection Handbook" remains the same, but it is now referenced rather than made an Exhibit.  Definitions of electronic form contractor and electronic form are added.
§19-135-5 is modified to clarify the authority of the Director of Transportation.
§19-135-8(c)(7) is added to ensure that inspection stations comply with zoning laws. Paragraphs (e)(1) and (2) remove a notarization requirement to make it easier to become an inspection station. 
§19-135-9(b) and (c) are amended to provide added flexibility for the period of time a station is open to the public and to allow only one inspector to run an inspection station. Subsection (e) is amended to remove the requirement for a station to have replacement parts, because the focus of the program is on inspections; stations have a profit motive for repairs and generally maintain a supply of replacement parts voluntarily. Paragraph (1) is amended to ensure that inspectors are aware of alternatives to purchasing a costly electronic headlamp aiming device. Paragraph (2) is amended to allow a functional alternative to a moped stand for holding a portion of the moped off of the ground. Paragraphs (5) and (6), which list some tools and moped parts, are removed in conjunction with the amendment to subsection (e) above.
§19-135-11(4) is deleted because the task of maintaining inspection examination results is completed automatically via the electronic inspection form program.
§19-135-12 is amended for clarity and to remove items not relevant to an inspector’s certification application.
§19-135-13 is amended to streamline the requirements for becoming a moped inspector and grandfather motorcycle inspectors as moped inspectors.
§19-135-14(d) is amended to allow motorcycle inspectors to perform moped inspections without receiving additional training.
§19-135-15 is amended to remove unnecessary wording and require moped stations to have a contract with the electronic form contractor. It also requires stations to maintain a copy of these rules for easy reference.
§19-135-16 is amended to require the inspection sticker to be affixed to the rear of the moped and to allow the electronic form contractor to maintain electronic records of inspections.  Requirements relating to the paper system are deleted.
§19-135-17 is amended to clarify the supervisory responsibilities of the Counties in association with the electronic form program and contractor. It deletes requirements for stations to submit data reports, because they are submitted automatically electronically.
§19-135-18 is amended to require stations and inspectors to keep their vehicles in compliance with inspection rules, in order to ensure that inspectors are complying with the same requirements as the general public. Also, the suspensions and revocations of 19-133.5, Hawaii Administrative Rules are inserted for use in this chapter and unnecessary wording is deleted.
§19-135-19 is amended to update and add reference material. It also clarifies that the only time an uncertified person can assist an inspector is when the inspector is training the person to become an inspector.
§19-135-20 is amended to clarify that the Director of Transportation has overall supervision of the program.
§19-135-22 is amended to add clarity as to the conditions when an inspector may refuse to inspect a moped.
§19-135-23 is amended to indicate that the Director sets the fee for inspections and the maximum fee for a moped inspection is the same as that for a motorcycle inspection. It also allows an additional fee only if the moped is inspected more than 30 days after failing an inspection.
§19-135-24 is amended to clarify the procedures to follow when a moped fails an inspection. The amendments include the condition that, if corrections are not made within 30 days, the moped owner will be charged the full fee ($13.24 plus tax) for a new inspection.
§19-135-25 is amended to clarify procedures to follow when a moped passes an inspection.
§19-135-26 is amended to clarify procedures to follow when replacing a lost or stolen inspection sticker or certificate.
§19-135-27 is amended to update the list of items to be inspected and to indicate that the moped inspection handbook contains details regarding failure criteria. The inspection of batteries in electric mopeds is added to paragraph (9).
§19-135-28 is amended to add details regarding the scope of inspection and added criteria for determining whether or not a device meets the definition of a moped. Details are also provided for measuring the sound level of muffler emissions.
§19-135-29 is amended to make it easier to look up federal standards that relate to mopeds. It also updates the moped inspection handbook, noting that updates to the handbook can be approved by the director.
The public hearings will be held by video conference on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 1:00 PM at the following locations:
Maui:  DOT Highways Division Maui District Office Conference Room, 650 Palapala Drive, Kahului, HI 96732

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS

Pursuant to Chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation (DOT) Highways Division, will hold public hearings relating to proposed amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 19-135, entitled "PERIODIC SAFETY INSPECTION OF MOPEDS."  The primary purpose of these amendments is to implement Act 200, SLH 2016, which requires mopeds to have annual safety inspections, be registered and issued a license plate.
The significant proposed amendments include:
§19-135-3: Two new definitions are added and two others are amended. The definition of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) has the effective date of the standards changed from April 1, 1985 to October 1, 2016. The definition of "Periodic Moped Inspection Handbook" remains the same, but it is now referenced rather than made an Exhibit.  Definitions of electronic form contractor and electronic form are added.
§19-135-5 is modified to clarify the authority of the Director of Transportation.
§19-135-8(c)(7) is added to ensure that inspection stations comply with zoning laws. Paragraphs (e)(1) and (2) remove a notarization requirement to make it easier to become an inspection station. 
§19-135-9(b) and (c) are amended to provide added flexibility for the period of time a station is open to the public and to allow only one inspector to run an inspection station. Subsection (e) is amended to remove the requirement for a station to have replacement parts, because the focus of the program is on inspections; stations have a profit motive for repairs and generally maintain a supply of replacement parts voluntarily. Paragraph (1) is amended to ensure that inspectors are aware of alternatives to purchasing a costly electronic headlamp aiming device. Paragraph (2) is amended to allow a functional alternative to a moped stand for holding a portion of the moped off of the ground. Paragraphs (5) and (6), which list some tools and moped parts, are removed in conjunction with the amendment to subsection (e) above.
§19-135-11(4) is deleted because the task of maintaining inspection examination results is completed automatically via the electronic inspection form program.
§19-135-12 is amended for clarity and to remove items not relevant to an inspector’s certification application.
§19-135-13 is amended to streamline the requirements for becoming a moped inspector and grandfather motorcycle inspectors as moped inspectors.
§19-135-14(d) is amended to allow motorcycle inspectors to perform moped inspections without receiving additional training.
§19-135-15 is amended to remove unnecessary wording and require moped stations to have a contract with the electronic form contractor. It also requires stations to maintain a copy of these rules for easy reference.
§19-135-16 is amended to require the inspection sticker to be affixed to the rear of the moped and to allow the electronic form contractor to maintain electronic records of inspections.  Requirements relating to the paper system are deleted.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
STATE OF HAWAII
(DOCKET NUMBER R-50-7-16)

Pursuant to chapters 91, 92, and 321-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the Department of Health of the State of Hawaii will hold public hearings on amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 50 ("HAR chapter 11-50"), entitled "Food Safety Code".

The proposed amendments updates provisions of HAR chapter 11-50 dealing with food establishment sanitation by clarifying certain definitions, requirements, and permitting procedures and establishing new requirements for food establishments. The proposed amendments:

1)  Near verbatim adoption of the 2013 FDA Model Food Code;

2)  Requires mandatory food handler’s education for the person(s) in charge at   all food facilities to reduce the frequency of food borne illnesses in the   State;

3) Will allow the DOH to deny renewal of food establishment permits for   facilities that are in arrears to the State for late, or non-payment of fines   and/or penalties imposed by the DOH;

4) Allows for the posting of a CLOSED Red Placard on food establishments   operating without valid DOH issued food permits; and

5)  Allows for a more robust "homemade" or cottage food industry by removing   barriers that limit frequency of sales while at the same time requiring easy   and low cost food handlers’ education for these operators and labeling   requirements that notify the public that these homemade foods were done   in a facility not inspected by the DOH.
  The DOH still reserves the right, as always, to investigate, embargo, seize   and to halt the sales of any food product, including homemade foods,  deemed to be a public health risk.

6) Removes the limit of 20 days of sale in a 120-day window for temporary of   "Special Event" food permits. "Special Event" permits will now have a   maximum length of one year as with all other food permits.

7) Clarifies and consolidates previous HAR sections on Mobile Food   Establishments and Temporary Food Sales into the rest of the food code as   food establishments.

The amendments proposed are designed to improve public health outcomes by directly and indirectly lowering the risk of contracting food and water borne illnesses in the State.

The public hearings will be held on the dates, at the times, and places noted below:

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
STATE OF HAWAII
(DOCKET NUMBER R-50-7-16)

Pursuant to chapters 91, 92, and 321-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the Department of Health of the State of Hawaii will hold public hearings on amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 50 ("HAR chapter 11-50"), entitled "Food Safety Code".

The proposed amendments updates provisions of HAR chapter 11-50 dealing with food establishment sanitation by clarifying certain definitions, requirements, and permitting procedures and establishing new requirements for food establishments. The proposed amendments:

1)  Near verbatim adoption of the 2013 FDA Model Food Code;

2)  Requires mandatory food handler’s education for the person(s) in charge at   all food facilities to reduce the frequency of food borne illnesses in the   State;

3) Will allow the DOH to deny renewal of food establishment permits for   facilities that are in arrears to the State for late, or non-payment of fines   and/or penalties imposed by the DOH;

4) Allows for the posting of a CLOSED Red Placard on food establishments   operating without valid DOH issued food permits; and

5)  Allows for a more robust "homemade" or cottage food industry by removing   barriers that limit frequency of sales while at the same time requiring easy   and low cost food handlers’ education for these operators and labeling   requirements that notify the public that these homemade foods were done   in a facility not inspected by the DOH.
  The DOH still reserves the right, as always, to investigate, embargo, seize   and to halt the sales of any food product, including homemade foods,  deemed to be a public health risk.

6) Removes the limit of 20 days of sale in a 120-day window for temporary of   "Special Event" food permits. "Special Event" permits will now have a   maximum length of one year as with all other food permits.

7) Clarifies and consolidates previous HAR sections on Mobile Food   Establishments and Temporary Food Sales into the rest of the food code as   food establishments.

The amendments proposed are designed to improve public health outcomes by directly and indirectly lowering the risk of contracting food and water borne illnesses in the State.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
STATE OF HAWAII
(DOCKET NUMBER R-50-7-16)

Pursuant to chapters 91, 92, and 321-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, notice is hereby given that the Department of Health of the State of Hawaii will hold public hearings on amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 11, Chapter 50 ("HAR chapter 11-50"), entitled "Food Safety Code".

The proposed amendments updates provisions of HAR chapter 11-50 dealing with food establishment sanitation by clarifying certain definitions, requirements, and permitting procedures and establishing new requirements for food establishments. The proposed amendments:

1)  Near verbatim adoption of the 2013 FDA Model Food Code;

2)  Requires mandatory food handler’s education for the person(s) in charge at   all food facilities to reduce the frequency of food borne illnesses in the   State;

3) Will allow the DOH to deny renewal of food establishment permits for   facilities that are in arrears to the State for late, or non-payment of fines   and/or penalties imposed by the DOH;

4) Allows for the posting of a CLOSED Red Placard on food establishments   operating without valid DOH issued food permits; and

5)  Allows for a more robust "homemade" or cottage food industry by removing   barriers that limit frequency of sales while at the same time requiring easy   and low cost food handlers’ education for these operators and labeling   requirements that notify the public that these homemade foods were done   in a facility not inspected by the DOH.
  The DOH still reserves the right, as always, to investigate, embargo, seize   and to halt the sales of any food product, including homemade foods,  deemed to be a public health risk.

6) Removes the limit of 20 days of sale in a 120-day window for temporary of   "Special Event" food permits. "Special Event" permits will now have a   maximum length of one year as with all other food permits.

7) Clarifies and consolidates previous HAR sections on Mobile Food   Establishments and Temporary Food Sales into the rest of the food code as   food establishments.

The amendments proposed are designed to improve public health outcomes by directly and indirectly lowering the risk of contracting food and water borne illnesses in the State.
