The debates are beginning, the legislative session is under way. Already on the table bills to place a fee or ban on plastic and paper bags at the check out as well as a bill that would require Hawai‘i to double the amount of food we grow by the year 2020!
This year Capitol Watch has a new website with a new look! The Sierra Club has pulled non-profit leaders, scholars, and activists from across the state to bring up to the minute coverage and suggestions on how to get your voice heard. They write "Capitol Watch is dedicated to demystifying the legislative process so you can have your voice heard on environmental issues important to you. Our band of volunteers track legislative bills with good and bad environmental consequences. Here you can find explanations of the bills, links to submit testimony or how to testify in person, and other ways to get more involved."
