Public outcry started on day one.
The PLDC was supposed to fast track the development of public lands something that would pad the state coffers.
Voters expressed their outrage from the Big Island to Kauai.
"It worked out that the public mobilized more than on any issue I have seen in 23 years," said Rep. Cynthia Thielen.
Lawmakers took a stab at bills to try and fix the structure of the PLDC, but the damage to the public trust was done.
"Overwhelmingly, people said you can try as hard as you can to fix it, but the reality is we don’t trust what is going on, you have to wipe it out," said Rep. Cindy Evans.
Now, just a third of the way into the legislative session, House lawmakers took a history-making vote unanimously repealing the law.
They admit they blew it last year, passing a bad bill.
Now they're making good on a pledge to pull the plug.
"We kept our promise, we repealed the bill. We all make mistakes and it was a mistake," said House Speaker Joe Souki.
