By News Release @ 2:11 AM :: 4881 Views

Aloha and Welcome to the Hawaii State Budget Interactive Worksheet!


We strongly believe that no one should be able to tell the people of Hawaii that they have no choice but to raise taxes. There are choices and these worksheets provide real numbers taken from real budgets.

Before you begin, please take a moment and review the instructional video below that walks you through last years interactive balanced budget worksheet. The Hawaii State balanced budget worksheet this year is similar in functionality to the spreadsheet put together last year.

Double Click on Video Player to view video in Full Screen Mode and Press Esc to exit Full Screen Mode. Click on YouTube logo on bottom left corner of player to view video on YouTube.



This interactive budget was built using real figures and made available for the people of Hawaii to scrutinize state revenues and expenditures and be able to manipulate them with the click of a mouse.

All you have to do is put an “X” next to the yellow highlighted choices on the worksheets and click to see how the House Republican Caucus chose to balance the budget.

Now, click on the image above and begin creating your own budget for the State of Hawaii and let us know if you agree or disagree with the choices we have made. Of course, if you disagree, you can always click other choices and see how they change the ending balances.


Political Radar: Alternative budget

State House Republicans released their version of the budget today, which avoids major new tax increases to close a $1.3 billion deficit.

Instead, minority Republicans urge Gov. Neil Abercrombie to delay state income tax refunds and borrow from the state’s hurricane relief fund to get through the fiscal year that ends in June….

Some of the other House Republican ideas:

  • *Sell state-owned lands.
  • *Restructure and potentially privatize state hospitals.
  • *Delay paying film tax credits.
  • *Delay state income tax deductions for higher-income taxpayers.
  • *Restrict appropriations to the University of Hawaii by 1 percent.
