“Hold” placed on Akaka Bill in Senate could effectively prevent passage
By News Release @ 1:28 PM :: 10974 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

News Release from “Aloha for All”:

Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina agrees with many of us here in Hawaii: A bill that will have serious consequences for all of us in Hawaii, and which has been radically changed recently, should not be acted upon by the U.S. Senate until Senators can hear the results of public hearings on the current version of the bill here in Hawaii.

Accordingly, Senator De Mint has put a "hold" on the bill pending the conduct of such hearings.

We understand that it could take up to a week of Senate debate to end Senator DeMint's hold, and the Senate calendar is already stretched to the limit. If this hold is eventually broken, several other Senators also intend to put holds on the bill.

This is a developing story, stay tuned . . .

UPDATE: DeMint: “I will use all the tools available in the Senate to ensure that Akaka Bill does not become law”
