CAP Watch Third Reading Status Report

CAP Watch Update

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

GREAT NEWS TO REPORT!

CAPWATCHYesterday was 3rd reading for our bills and we are doing well so far. Conference committee is the challenge, so we are not done yet, but we are rollin’ thanks to those who took the time to weigh in on bills! It does make a difference. We have managed to insert better language into many measures because of community support.

As you can see we have 2 bills already on the Governor’s desk. Some bills just need the date to be made effective and others will go to conference or die this session. Since Hawai`i works on a biennium budget, bills from this session that got held up  are still alive next session.

Here is where we are right now:
