Triple Referral Lateral

From Rep Beth Fukumoto Chang, March 18, 2016

On Thursday (3/17), the Legislature reached the second triple referral filing deadline for the next phase of Session. All bills referred to three or more committees had to be passed through their first committee yesterday, so they can be in their second to last committee by today. House/Senate bills that passed first crossover are currently being considered in the non-originating chamber.

Cub Scout Pack 126

I had the opportunity to talk to Cub Scout Pack 126 from Kapolei and Ewa Beach. Our own House Minority Research Office Manager Candace Kelsey’s grandson is part of the Pack and invited me to speak to the group about the legislature and current issues in the community. The Pack visited the legislature to complete their “Building a Better World” requirement.
