  1. Hawaiino:

    Had an interesting conversation tonight with a committee chair regarding SB2874, which sought to limit one of the Governors appointments to the BLNR to a recognized cultural practitioner. I asked why they had passed it through, I'd read the versions and the testimony during the process and he knew that. It was a flawed bill on its premise. He replied, "We didn't want to mess with a Hawaiian issue, we'll let him(the Gov)do the dirty work". While I understand the concerns that led the proponents to propose and support this bill and believe it had some merit, the conversation led me to wonder how often "spite" bills might pass through the Lege just to test or force the Governors hand.

    I guess the reverse could be the Gov and Turtle Bay funding?

    lingle left trash behind when she left office.

    "This is a decision that should not be made by one person sitting in her office or by members of the Majority Party behind closed doors in a legislative caucus, but by all the people of Hawaii behind the curtain of the voting booth."

    lingle vetoed many past bills because of wording. she now passes the trash to present governor.

    Seems a Caucasian issue if in Hawaii and not a Hawaiian issue.
