Hawaii’s car transport industry has been struggling for some time, and it’s getting worse.
The state is facing a $2 billion shortfall, with several carriers announcing they are shutting down and laying off workers.
And as the cost of getting around the island continues to skyrocket, some drivers are starting to worry about the long-term sustainability of their jobs.
Car transport companies in Hawaii were founded in Hawaii’s first century as a means to transport goods between the island and mainland.
But over the past few decades, the industry has struggled to survive, as companies have been forced to lay off staff.
The industry has seen its stock prices fall in the past decade, and some carriers have recently announced they would be shutting down their operations altogether.
Now, the fate of the industry is uncertain.
The State of Hawaii is expected to announce a new tax on car transport services starting in 2018.
The measure would tax the transportation companies operating in the state, meaning they would have to close, or lay off thousands of employees.
The proposal would take effect in 2020, and if enacted, it could cause a ripple effect throughout the industry.
According to a report from the Honolulu Star Advertiser, the Hawaii Transportation Authority is considering a tax of as much as $1,000 per vehicle.
That would take a significant toll on the Hawaiian transportation industry.
“This is really a tax on the car transport industries and we’re not going to get this through,” said Mike McManus, president of Hawaii’s Car Transport Association.
“It’s time for Hawaii to take the lead in a serious approach to improving the quality of our transportation infrastructure.”
The proposed tax would be the first step toward addressing the state’s transportation problems.
According to the report, the state has a projected $2.3 billion shortfall for 2020, with a projected 2.1 million cars on the road.
The agency is currently working with the state legislature to craft a revenue source to address the shortfall, but a tax would go a long way toward alleviating the state of the crisis.
The Honolulu Star reported that Hawaii is home to some of the most congested highways in the country.
Many of the state�s major roads, like I-90, Hwy.
101 and Highway 101/Hwy.
343, are among the most crowded in the nation.
A recent report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that in Hawaii, the average car travel time is more than twice the national average.
According, the report estimated that nearly one out of five vehicles in the United States are delayed in the month of March.
As the industry continues to struggle, the impact of a tax may be felt in other parts of the island.
While the Hawaii Airports Authority estimates that the state needs about 40 million more seats to accommodate the estimated 6.6 million passengers expected to travel on its highways in 2020.
The proposed tax could be a huge blow to the industry, as the FAA has warned that its air traffic controllers will be able to no longer take in as many people as they used to.
According a report by The Associated Press, the Honolulu Airport Authority is currently facing a massive shortfall.
The airport’s projected $1.5 billion shortfall is due in part to the state government having to cut $4.6 billion from its operations, as well as to the closure of its three airports.
The government recently announced it would shut down the airport as well, with the FAA saying that it will be unable to handle the influx of passengers that will be arriving in the coming months.
A spokesperson for the Hawaii State Department of Transportation told the AP that the agency is still considering the impact the tax would have on its operations.
“We continue to assess all options and are in the process of evaluating the impact this would have and will determine how best to proceed when it is made known to us,” the spokesperson said.
