relating to public lands.

 

 

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

"8- Public Lands Day. The fourth Saturday in September shall be known and designated as "Public Lands Day" in recognition of the significant value and beneficial uses of the State's public lands. This day is not and shall not be construed to be a state holiday."

SECTION 3. New statutory material is underscored.

SECTION 4. This Act shall take effect upon its approval.
