Hawaii Legislature Expects to Reconvene June 22
The Hawaii Legislature will resume its session on June 22 to address budget issues, COVID-19, and police discipline measures.
The Legislature previously recessed on May 22 after passing legislation storing more than $1 billion in the general fund.
Now lawmakers will need to pass a balanced budget of approximately $413 million for the fiscal year.
In terms of law enforcement reform, lawmakers will consider a proposal to require police to intervene when they see their fellow officers involved in potentially unlawful situations.
The legislative session is expected to adjourn sine die on July 10.
