So far on her trip, she's met with the U.S. Department of Energy about her vision to have 70-percent of Hawaii's energy come from clean sources by 2030.

"I wanted to make certain that even when I leave office in 10 months, that our relationship and the resources of the federal government continue on", said Lingle.

Day one kicked off Saturday.

At the top of the agenda is health care reform.
