CAPWATCH CONFERENCE UPDATE … APRIL 23, 2018 … CAPWATCH CONFERENCE UPDATE

 

Mahalo nui to everyone who has contacted the conference committee members on SB 2047 –

the Audit of the Department of Public Safety. SB 2047 HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR CONFERENCE ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25TH AT 10 IN ROOM 016. https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2018/hearingnotices/CONF_PSM_04-25-18_.HTM

PLEASE DON’T STOP. Right now if we can get the House members (Gates and Thielen) to push for SD1 and we get the Senate (Nishihara, Keith-Agaran & L. Thielen) to agree to the SD1, we just might get something worthwhile out of this mess. This is the most important public safety bill of the session. If we truly want correctional reform, we have to know what is going on and how the department really operates in order to create a just and humane system for those imprisoned and for those who work within it. Let’s re-imagine corrections and create a humane system where both the imprisoned and the people who work in the facilities work together to create a better world. This is possible…especially with our population of low-level lawbreakers struggling with TREATABLE social and medical challenges. 

Here is what is happening to the CAP bills:

·        +    2 passed and are headed for Final Reading

·        –    2 bills that contained LEAD funding – LEAD $ is in the Budget

·        + 10 bills in conference

·        ?   2 bills not scheduled as of 4.23 3pm

·        ?  1 bill with no Senate conferees

Tuesday Conferences: 10 am – Civil Rights/Title IX & Family Leave; 10:15 am – Youth Commission; 10:30 am – Kawailoa Youth & Family Wellness Center

 

Wednesday Conferences: 10 am – AUDIT bill; PSD Reentry Data; HCI Pilot Reentry Pgm; Parole bill (that does nothing but hold HPA harmless from NEVER ASKING FOR GATE MONEY!)
