Is Hawaii's State Budget healthy, or is it in trouble?  That is the question we want to ask State Auditor Jan Yamane and State Budget Director Wes Machida.

Jan Yamane and Wes Machida are tasked with holding the state accountable for budget and spending issues.  Join us as we ask important questions about:

  • The Employee Retirement System, and the growing unfunded liabilities problem;
  • The new Comprehensive Annual Financial Report released by the Office of the Auditor;
  • The issue of Special Revolving Trust Funds of Executive Departments and the Judiciary, and how this affects the State;
  • Many more issues concerning the health of the budget!

You don't want to miss this high powered discussion!
