HONOLULU (KHON2) — Governor Ige will sign SB60, which will allow vehicle owners to obtain a specialty license plate commemorating the Polynesian Voyaging Society. Though the linked bill notes that the plates are for electric vehicles, it was later clarified that there was an amendment that allows for all vehicles to obtain these plates.

The revenue from the specialty plates will be put into a separate county budget account for the Society’s use.
The Polynesian Voyaging Society is well known for the voyages of the Hokule’a and her sister canoe Hikianalia, most notably the Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage. The PVS also concentrates on protecting the world’s oceans as well as their educational programs.
