Bills Move to Conference Committees

The legislative session will end on Thursday, May 5, 2022.  That is just around the corner.  After the legislative session ends, we will go back to monthly eNews so you don't have to worry that you will continue to get blasted every week!  Mahalo for hanging in there all session.

This is the point in the legislative session when bills that have disagreement between the House and Senate will move to a conference committee to work out any differences.  Keep in mind that you have to have voted YES on a bill to be appointed to the conference committee.  That ensures that a bill has a better than average chance of passing - with agreement of both chambers.

SB 2634 Medicaid Bill: (Allows Medicaid for postpartum depression up to one year)

04/18/22: Senate Conferees Appointed: San Buenaventura Chair; Keohokalole, Misalucha Co-Chairs; Fevella.

04/20/22: House Conferees Appointed: Yamane, Tam Co-Chairs; Kapela, Ward.

HB 1823 Assisted Suicide Expansion Bill:

04/19/22: Senate Conferees Appointed: Keohokalole Chair; Baker, Rhoads Co-Chairs; Moriwaki, Fevella.

As of this eNews we are awaiting House Appointees.

There is no more public input at this time on bills, but if bills come out of the conference committee, they will be placed on the floor (of both chambers) for one final reading. 

Stay tuned!

Upcoming Legislative Deadlines

More Governmental Shenanigans

"State laws and policies that prevent parents or guardians from following the advice of a healthcare professional regarding what may be medically necessary or otherwise appropriate care for transgender minors may infringe on rights protected by both the Equal Protection and the Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment."  [Read full memo]
