VC: US Coast Guard / Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandon Verdura

Acting Gov. Josh Green recently issued an 11th supplementary emergency proclamation, extending the emergency relief period for last year’s Kaua‘i floods. 

The proclamation extends authority to spend state funds as appropriated to protect the health, safety and welfare of Kaua‘i residents and visitors.

According to a press release from the office of the governor, the proclamation “supports the state’s efforts to provide quick and efficient relief of suffering, damage and losses caused by the flooding.”

Gov. Ige signed the initial emergency proclamation for the Kaua‘i floods on April 15 last year. 

The 11th supplementary proclamation continues until Jan. 29, 2020, unless it is terminated by a separate proclamation. 

Lt. Gov. Green was serving as acting governor until Gov. Igeʻs return from personal leave on Nov. 30.
