Hawaii Superferry set to sail again
The Hawaii House voted 39-11 yesterday for a bill that allows Hawaii Superferry to resume service while the state conducts an environmental impact assessment.
The Senate approved the bill 20-5 on Monday, and it now goes to Gov. Linda Lingle, who is expected to sign it into law.
Hawaii Superferry President and CEO John Garibaldi issued a statement following the House vote in the state House of Representatives that said that "although there are several operational, regulatory and legal steps that need to be completed before Hawaii Superferry will resume service, it is our hope that these tasks will be accomplished within the next two weeks."
