This proclamation also provides additional time for Puna Geothermal Venture to re-establish, or begin to re-establish, the regulatory framework under which it is required to operate.

The initial emergency proclamation was signed on May 3, when the latest Kīlauea eruption began.

The current disaster emergency relief period continues until Dec. 29, 2018
