HAWAI'I STATE SENATE UNVEILS 2017 LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM

HONOLULU, Hawai'i - Our communities, environment, sustainability and public safety are areas of which the Hawai'i State Senate will focus in the 29th Legislative Biennium.

The areas are incorporated under four over-arching themes that embrace Hawaiian values and collectively form the Legislative Program the Hawai'i State Senate will use as a guide throughout the Regular Session of 2017.

"On many of these issues, we're continuing the work that had begun in the previous legislative sessions," said Senate Majority Leader J. Kalani English. "We recognize the importance to be self-reliant and take care of our island home. There's also a responsibility to be prepared for the future, ensuring that the next generation is not saddled with problems we can do our best to address right now."

The 2017 Legislative Program for the Hawai'i State Senate is as follows:

Ola Lehulehu - People and Communities

Aloha Kaiāulu Ho'oulu - Preparedness

Aloha Honua - Climate Change and Energy

Pono Kaulike - Transforming Justice

It is the Hawai'i State Senate's sincere hope that we can work collaboratively with the House of Representatives, the Governor, and the Judiciary to achieve all the goals outlined in this Program.
