How a Bill Becomes a Law Part 3

From Rep Beth Fukumoto Chang, April 21, 2016

It's hard to believe we only have two weeks left in the 2016 Legislative Session! If you'd like to know more about what we do here at the Capitol, click here for the third part of my "How a Bill Becomes a Law" fact sheet. Part Three discusses the three different scenarios a bill can go through after passing Second Crossover.

Earth Day

Celebrating Earth Day in the Legislature by wearing natural fiber clothing. Thank you Rep. Cynthia Thielen for giving us our Hemp Aloha Shirts. We live on a beautiful planet, let's take care of it. Happy Earth Day!

Free Document Shredding

AARP Hawaii and Access Corporation are teaming up for free document shredding events at the Access Information Management Destruction Plants in Aiea (Oahu), Kailua-Kona (Hawaii Island) and Wailuku (Maui). 

The public is invited to bring old tax forms, bank statements, and other sensitive papers for convenient and confidential on site destruction. This is a drive through and drop-off event with unloading assistance available. Staples and paperclips do not need to be removed.  AARP membership is not required.  Limit of four file boxes or bags of paper per vehicle occupant.

Participants are encouraged to bring donations of brown rice and canned goods to benefit Hawaii's hungry families.  All donations will stay in the community and be given to the Hawaii Foodbank on the island on which the shredding event is taking place.

Registration is not required for participation in these events.
