Cam Talks About Deregulating Shipping with KFVE
A simple change to an antiquated federal law could make a world of difference to the cost of living in Hawaii. And yet, not a single member of Hawaii’s Congressional Delegation has been willing to propose that change. Cam sat down with KFVE to explain how he would help the average Hawaii citizen by supporting deregulation of shipping in Hawaii:
“Right now, Hawaiian Airlines can purchase their ships, their airplanes from anywhere in the world. Why should the federal government tell Matson or Horizon that they must buy their ships from a manufacturing facility in the United States at five times the cost that they would pay out of Australia or China?” he posed.
Cavasso says that allowing the free market to determine the buying decisions of Hawaii’s shipping companies will in turn, benefit local families.
“Just that simple change of allowing our shipping companies to buy their ships from anywhere in the world will save the average family in Hawaii $3,000 per year in the cost of living. We need help, and the federal government should not be telling us what we can and cannot do,” he said.
