HONOLULU (AP) - The state Senate is approving more than $7 million in emergency funding for Kauai's publicly funded hospitals and clinics.

Lawmakers passed the legislation Tuesday during a special session called to consider a measure on gay marriage.

The measure now goes to the governor for approval.

A Senate news release says emergency funding will ensure the facilities that make up Hawaii Health Systems Corporation's Kauai region remain operational through the spring of 2014. Those facilities include Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital, Samuel Mahelona Memorial Hospital and three clinics.
