On 2/12/2013, at 9:30 A.M., I testified before the House Human Services Committee commenting on HB1006 that allows the Department of Human Services to create a Family Justice Center task force to consider the establishment of family justice centers to assist victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, or human trafficking, and provide family-based social services. One of the goals of the bill is to help fund Family Justice Centers, which we would be very grateful to receive.
At 11:00 A.M., Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tricia Nakamatsu and I celebrated Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Allen Yadao’s birthday ad Dave & Buster’s for lunch. We shot some basketballs and played a couple of video games.

Effective upon the ratification of the proposed constitutional amendment, proposed by H.B. 853 (2013), permitting public funds for private early childhood education programs.
