With so many bills going back and forth across the State House and Senate, it's hard to keep track without a scorecard. Well, actually, there IS a scorecard of sorts located at www.capitol.hawaii.gov where you can actually track pending bills, see who's in charge of what committees, and find out when and where you can go to testify or listen to testimony. And trust me, there really is something for everyone amid the smorgasbord of paperwork which is rapidly being dissected and discussed.
So where does that leave you? Perhaps in the "ainokea" camp, perhaps on the "nothing every changes" team, or perhaps in the "oh, the legislature's in session" clueless section. Either way, rest assured that what goes on behind closed doors over with open meetings over the next two months will affect your very lives in some way. And while no one is advertising it, your voice needs to be heard if you want to have any say or influence to steer things one way or another.
