Hawaii Lawmakers Recess Due to COVID-19 Concerns
The House and Senate leadership announced on March 16 that the 60-day legislative session is going into an immediate recess expected to last eight weeks.
Legislators are following the recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The guidelines urge the public to refrain from gathering in groups of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
The session will resume where it left off subject to the call of Senate President Ron Kouchi and House Speaker Scott Saiki.
