Majority package

January 15th, 2015

The Senate Majority has finalized its set of priorities for the Legislative session, and plans to focus in three main areas: energy and food resiliency, community well-being and smart growth, and government effectiveness.

In a memo to members, leadership outlines those priorities "that will improve the quality of life for revenue everyone in Hawaii."

The memo states:

We, of the Democratic Majority of the Hawai'i State Senate, are committed to a vision and future for Hawai'i that will stabilize Hawai'i's economy and improve our quality of life for generations to come. We have a unique opportunity to serve the people of Hawai'i. In that spirit, the Senate Majority is committed to being open, inclusive, and collaborative in its decision-making on behalf of the people of the State of Hawai'i.

House leaders say their package is still being formulated, but it is expected to focus on improving existing programs and infrastructure and limit the amount of spending on new initiatives.

    In your second para: "will improve the quality of life for revenue in Hawaii." Does this phrase--quality of life for revenue--actually exist in the memo? First, corporations are people, then revenue has quality of life!

    I think we should ask them to reduce the quality of life here. I think we all have it too good and its about time legislators did something to put a stop to it.
