Hawaii State Legislature
The Hawaii State Legislature's website is the key portal for those wishing to get informed and involved in the legislative process. The site is geared toward providing quick and easy access to the information you need in order to participate in the lawmaking process. A wealth of information is available on the opening page. A search box can help you quickly determine who your Representative and Senator are; access bills and resolutions, determine their current status, and submit testimony on them; find out when chamber sessions and committee meetings are scheduled; and research the Hawaii Revised Statutes (the State’s laws). Information on all upcoming hearings is also posted prominently on the opening page.
Legislative Calendar The legislative calendar lists key dates in the legislative timetable.
Reports Lists of bills and resolutions that have passed specific deadlines are available here, as well as daily downloads of bills and committee reports, budget worksheets, governor’s messages, reports to the legislature from various departments, and a wealth of other resources.
Legislators and Committees Provides information on who the current members of the legislature are, their contact information, and on which committees they are serving. Current members who serve in leadership positions for the House and Senate are available.
Submit Testimony One of the best ways to get involved is to submit testimony for bills that are going to be heard by the committees.
Register with the Hawaii Legislature Additional resources are available for those who choose to register an account with the legislature. As a registered user, you can track your own personalized list of measures, and get e-mail notifications for hearings on specific measures or for specific committees. Registered users can also submit online testimony more easily, since much of the information needed to send testimony through the website – date/time/place of hearing, etc. – will populate automatically by entering a bill/resolution number.
