It could be, but not really. The tariff would only pertain to vehicles and trailers...basically anything that is driven aboard to ferry. It would not pertain to passengers; and it would be assessed at the time of ticket purchase so it would be easier to track and monitor. Payment could be done monthly or weekly, that way monies would not be confused with other revenue and surcharges. You got to figure... most of the arguement is because outer islanders feel their aina will be spoiled by more influx of vehicular traffic, taxing their lifestyle as well as the pocketbook. This tariff off-sets that concern and also helps everyone out.
I meant I thought it would be difficult to LEGALLY add a tariff to the Superferry. Maybe another special session? Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good idea, just not realistic for the reasons I mentioned. But I don't really know. Hey, talk to your legislator!

the SF can charge anything they want to and justify it... they don't even need to call it a tariff; just make up a price to include the fees. It would be voluntary on the SF's part to settle with all parties.

Lessons in tyranny. When a government openly breaks their own long established laws (environmental laws) and then threatens any acts of civil disobedience with threats of ripping children from their fathers and mothers arms is called tyranny in my book. Webster’s Dictionary defines tyranny as “1 : oppressive power <every form of tyranny over the mind of man -- Thomas Jefferson>; especially : oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police state>.
It is time for you, Governor Lingle, to back off these incendiary and provocative attempts at intimidation against your own constituents. The Hawaii Supreme Court has sent you a message. It is time for you to uphold the environmental laws of Hawaii. It is time for you to show fairness and equity for ALL the people you represent and not only those who contribute to your campaign coffers. It is time for you to protect your ohana, not threaten us with bullying tactics and statements. It is time for you to protect our living islands, our sea life, our community, and our aloha spirit from the outside forces who are motivated by money, power and agenda’s that are alien to the spirit of Hawaii. Do what is right and just, get an EIS first.
