Posted April 29th, 2014 @ 1:13pm

State lawmakers decided not to lift the cap of the counties' share of hotel room tax revenues Friday, much to the dismay of the state's four mayors and County Council leaders.  They had pushed hard this session to get the cap lifted. For each of the next two years, the counties will get $103 million from transient accommodations taxes, which is $10 million more than they've been receiving since 2011. Honolulu will get $4.4 million more. Maui county will get $2.3 million more. Hawaii County will get an extra $2 million and Kauai County will get $1.5 million more.
