Gov. Neil Abercrombie is asking the Public Land Development Corp. to put off any action on pending rules while the state fully considers and addresses public concerns about the agency. 

The governor said in a statement today he’s asked the organization’s board to postpone any meetings until the concerns are considered. 

Critics say the law creating the agency — passed last year — allows land to be developed without zoning rules or other restrictions. 

The governor says he doesn’t want the potential for the corporation to accomplish public good to be lost because the state failed to account for reservations. 

Abercrombie says his administration will do its best to alleviate public concerns. But he says the Legislature created the agency and will be the ones to decide its future.
