Dear Tulsi Gabbard,

I am a student at Kihei Charter High school on Maui. Currently we are doing a project on
how sustainable Hawaii is and the driving question is If planes and barges stopped coming to
Hawaii how would we get our food.

Right now we import over 90% of our food and if we were cut off we would not be
sustainable. In order to make our island more self sustainable, this is what we should do to
sustain our island: we should grow crops, we could use the sugar cane fields after they close for
hemp. If they turn this land into developments then we would have less agricultural land to plant
crops for the island. There needs to be a law to prevent this land from turning into
developments. That law should be if someone wants to develop something the community
should vote and if the vote yes then it should be build and if they vote no then it should not be
built. Also we should make it easier for farmers who want to farm by having less restrictions on
farming such as what you can export off the island. If this law was to be passed we would have
a lot of land for farmers to grow crops on a large scale in order to make our island more self
sustainable.

Sincerely,
Shane Behn
