Rep. Hermina Morita appointed PUC chair

Kauai Rep. Hermina Morita (District 14 - Hanalei, Anahola, Kealia, Kapaa, Waipouli) accepted an appointment by Governor Abercrombie today as the new chair of the state's Public Utilities Commission.

Here is Speaker Calvin Say's statement:

“Rep. Hermina Morita has been an excellent representative for her Kauai district and for the state of Hawaii. She has become one of the state’s experts on energy and the environment, and while her departure will be a great loss for the House, the state will gain a competent and well-respected chair of the Public Utilities Commission.

Her accomplishments at and contributions to the legislature were stellar, and on behalf of the House of Representatives, we wish Rep. Morita every success as she embarks upon a new challenge.”
