Aloha e Friends,

I hope you and your ‘ohana are well. As usual, the session has been running at warp speed with close to 3,000 bills being introduced (1,317 by the Senate and 1,601 by the House). The vast majority of the bills which passed out of their respective committees were voted on Third Reading by the entire Senate and House on March 7th. This is called "First Crossover." The Senate bills that passed Third Reading are now being heard by the respective committees on the House side. At the same time, House bills that passed Third Reading are being heard by the Senate.

I encourage you to visit the Capitol website to track the bills you're interested in and weigh in when you can, either by submitting written testimony, or by showing up in person to testify.

And as always, please feel free to contact me at 586-6830 or email if I can help you or your family in any way. You can also follow me on Twitter @senmikegabbard, Instagram @sengabbard, or Facebook at

Me ke aloha pumehana, 

Mike Gabbard, State Senator, District 20

Chair, Agriculture and Environment Committee
