Here's a link to the Hawaii Superferry Audit report released yesterday. The Advertiser story is here. The AP story is here. No word yet on followup action, if any. The audit was conducted in accordance with Act 2, passed in the 2nd Special Session of 2007.
The performance audit conducted by the Office of the Auditor is only Phase I. Phase I focuses on the administration's action to exempt the Department of Transportation from the requirements of the state's environmental impact statement law related to harbor improvements in order to accommodate the Hawaii Superferry. Phase II will focus on the whether this decision "will cost the state more than its environmental policy."
