Hawaii Aloha

May 2nd, 2013


House and Senate lawmakers wrapped up the 2013 legislative session on Thursday, sending the last handful of measures to the Gov. Neil Abercrombie for consideration and officially killing a few others, including a measure to establish the offense of disorderly conduct at bus stops (House Bill 31) and a proposal to create a new captive insurance company to manage the Employee-Union Trust Fund (Senate Bill 946).

The Senate adjourned around 11:55 a.m., followed about 15 minutes later by the House.

Senators made their way to the House chamber for lunch and to say their goodbyes. Gov. Neil Abercrombie even joined hand-in-hand with lawmakers (above photo) to sing the Legislature's traditional farewell song, "Hawaii Aloha."
