Maui's skies could soon become darker at night -- after lawmakers advanced a bill today that would restrict some outdoor lighting.

WAILUKU, Hawaii (KITV4) -- Before clearing an 8-1 vote in front the Maui County Council Tuesday, Bill 21 saw staunch support and criticism. The measure proposes to limit the blue light content in outdoor fixtures to 2 % or less, as well as have lights pointed down and covered. 

Low wattage lights for holiday decorations and cultural festivals, non-ocean front homes, and sporting events would be exempt from the rule.
