Aloha e Friends,

Sine Die, the last day of the 2016 legislative session, was on May 5th.

Be sure to keep an eye out for my June newsletter next month, where I'll provide a complete Legislative Wrap-up.

In an effort to raise money for the Hawai‘i Foodbank, and provide a little levity and fun entertainment amidst a rather intense session, the Legislature held its "4th Annual Capitol Idol" on April 21st and brought in almost $1200!

Me ke aloha pumehana, 

Mike Gabbard, State Senator, District 20

Chair, Water, Land, and Agriculture Committee
