This is the latest update on some of my bills that are still alive.
I am working hard with the Chair of Finance Committee, Dwight Takamine on my Capital Improvement Project requests for Honowai Elementary, Kaleiopuu Elementary and Waikele Elementary Schools. Honowai Elementary wants air conditioning for their library. Kaleiopuu Elementary requested an emergency gate in the back of their school. Finally, Waikele Elementary hopes to extend their parking lot. The fiscal situation is tight, but being that I am on the Finance Committee, I intends to do my best to see these projects funded.
My enterprise zone bill will be decided tomorrow in Finance Committee. My ethics bill is in Judiciary committee and grant-in-aid bill for Waipahu Cultural Garden is in Finance Committee. My Health Employer Medical Insurance Company bill needs to be heard by the Judiciary Committee in the Senate if it is to go on to third reading. I will be defending my procurement bill on third reading this Thursday. On that day, I will also be presenting my first floor speech.
