LEGISLATURE RECONVENING MAY 11
The Hawaii State Legislature will reconvene next Monday, May 11th. This reconvened session is expected to be about 6-10 days to address state budget issues and for the Senate to take up confirmation hearings for various state boards and commissions. The Ways and Means and Finance Committees will need to consider an estimated $1 billion in budget cuts from the $8 billion general fund budget, while minimizing cuts to social services or pay cuts or furloughs.
All meetings and hearings will be broadcast live on Olelo; however, the public will not be able to attend, and written testimony will be excepted via submission.
