Aloha e Friends,

A big congrats to all the high school grads of James Campbell High, Kapolei High, Waipahu High, and Island Pacific Academy. I wish these grads great success in their chosen paths in life. The 2017 Legislative Session ended on May 4th. One of the highlights of the session for Senate District 20 was that we were able to secure $77 million for the construction of East Kapolei Middle School. The new school will be located behind the Kroc Center and is scheduled to open for the 2019-2020 school year. We also appropriated $27 million to complete a new classroom building to lessen overcrowding at Campbell High School. Here's a wrap-up of some of the major highlights of the session:
