UPDATE: VIDEO: Flagpole bill had 17 votes for recall

Aloha Friends and Veterans,

I wanted to report to you how the vote went today to recall the bill-HB2311 to save the rights of Americans to be able to fly the American flag wherever they live and on their own property. 

Sadly, we were short just three votes. 

Today, veterans groups, members of the military, and supporters have committed this day as being the first day of their next battle to get this issue passed at the State Capitol.  They plan to lobby the Legislature to insert the language of HB2311 into another bill that is moving at the State Capitol.

If this is something that you support, please call each legislator or come to the State Capitol to visit every office to let them know that you support these actions.  Attached is the link to the contact information for Legislators at the State Capitol.

The vote to support the recall of HB2311 to the floor are as follows:

Recall vote was as follows:

The (14) Representatives voting to bring HB2311 to the floor for a vote:

  • (GOP) Ching, Finnegan, Marumoto, Pine, Thielen, Ward. 
  • (Dems) Awana, Carroll, Har, Keith-Agaran, Manahan, McKelvey, Takai, Yamane  (UPDATE -- Votes cast, but not counted: Brower, Lee, Shimabukuro)

Although HB2311 is technically considered dead, we still have an opportunity until the end of April to convince the Legislature that this is a very important issue and a basic right to have.
