*** CAPWATCH *** REPORT FROM THE FRONT *** MAY 3, 2018 *** SINE DIE ***

 

            I AM ECSTATIC TO REPORT THAT THE KAWAILOA YOUTH & FAMILY WELLNESS CENTER PASSED 3RD READING! MAHALO NUI TO EVERYONE WHO CONTACTED A HOUSE MEMBER TO SUPPORT THE BILL. WE DID IT!  MAHALO. MAHALO. MAHALO.

            Thursday, May 3rd was sine die for the 2018 Legislature. A legislative body adjourns sine die when it adjourns without appointing a day on which to appear or assemble again.

            I’m running out, however, I wanted to share this HPR report on the session. I received a call asking if I was disappointed that SB 2047 didn’t pass and would be willing to say so on the radio. The first piece is from Neal Milner, a retired UH Political Science Professor and he goes over some of the big bills. I spoke first on the next section – “Disappointments” about the audit bill and the deaths in our correctional facilities.

Disappointments from 2018 Legislative Season

It’s the final day of the 2018 legislative session at the State Capitol.   After months of debate and lobbying, only 41 of the 2260 bills introduced have made it to the Governor’s desk, which left many disappointed stakeholders. We reached out and asked some of them to share their experience.

OK, I have to run. Mahalo for caring about our community. I will send out more analysis when I decompress. Passing the Kawailoa bill today, definitely took a lot of the sting out of this session for me. At least there is an expression of concern for our struggling youth. That gives me hope – as does meeting the folks from RYSE.

Love, Kat
