Ways and Means Committee meets Wednesday morning
News Release from Hawaii Senate Democratic Caucus, May 12, 2020
Senator Donovan Dela Cruz’s budget committee will meet tomorrow Wednesday at 10:25 a.m. (An earlier press release erroneously gave the wrong time.)
Two bills in particular will be discussed:
HB 117 relating to state funds, deferring further implementation of the executive and judicial branch salary increases scheduled for July 1, 2020, as well as planned raises for members of the Legislature on January 1, 2021.
(Politician's Trick: Put off future raises rather than cancelling them outright and/or giving back past raises.)
HB 2200 HD 1 relating to the state budget, adjusting and making additional appropriations for fiscal biennium 2019-2021 to fund the operations of executive branch agencies and programs.
The meeting will be shown live on ‘Olelo channel 55, as well as streaming live online at olelo.org/55.
