House Speaker Joseph Souki on Thursday credited the public with identifying “pukas” with the Public Land Development Corp., which the House voted unanimously to repeal.
Asked whether he saw any similarities between the public’s reaction to the PLDC and his unpopular van cam law a decade ago, Souki laughed:
“Van cam was one of my favorite projects. It did save lives. And I think it’s very different than van cam,” the speaker said, adding however that like van cam, the idea behind the PLDC was good but the process was off.
