State lawmakers from Central Maui will host a talk story session next weekend. Rep. Justin Woodson and Sen. Gil Keith-Agaran will provide an update on current measures that will impact the community.

Woodson, who serves as a member of the House Committee on Finance, said the House was able to negotiate roughly $89 million for the Kahului area. This, he notes in communications with constituents, is approximately 40% higher than the average amount secured.

The list reportedly includes $50 million for land acquisition for Kahului Airport; $5 million for Kahului Harbor improvements; and $22.7 million for improvements at the Maui Memorial Medical Center.
