Embattled PLDC to take rules out for second round of hearings

A state corporation formed to help develop and raise revenues through public land development will be going through a second round of statewide hearings about its proposed  rules after being blasted by critics in the first round.

The state Public Land Development Corp. board voted Thursday to take the rules to public hearings again, despite  calls from environmentalists and native Hawaiians to eliminate the agency. Officials say they want to consider changes to the proposed rules.

The public hearings will probably occur in mid-November, a PLDC official said.
