Hawaii Invasive Species Protection Act

This bill directs the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to conduct visual, x-ray, and canine preclearance quarantine inspections for high-risk invasive species and agricultural materials on persons, baggage, cargo, and any other articles destined for direct movement to or from the state of Hawaii.

The inspections must be conducted at airports, ports, and postal sorting facilities.

APHIS must also consult with the state of Hawaii to develop and publish a list of items subject to inspection.

User fees must be prescribed and collected to cover the cost of inspections.
