Aloha Chair Luke & Vice Chair Cullen,
As a citizen of Hawaii who cares deeply about our marine and coastal environments, I am very happy to see that SB________ (bill number) has made its way to your committee as its hopeful final stop before the governor signs this into law. I am kindly urging you to add this to a FIN hearing agenda as soon as possible so we can continue to show up and share the importance of this in our communities. My hope is that the overwhelming public support from constituents, restaurants, businesses in the tourism industry, and many others is heard and we can move to make our State a leader in sustainability on issues of ocean protection.
I am concerned about foam pollution/cesspools/Oxybenzone pollution because______________________. (your personal experience)..
