HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii lawmakers will return from long holiday weekend and tackle a slew of resolutions and bills in committee hearings.

They'll take up a resolution about driving under the influence of marijuana. And another resolution asks the federal government to set limits on how small airline seats can get.

Lawmakers also will look at ways to address a shortage of mental health services for teenagers. And they will hear proposals on ways to help homeless female veterans and pedestrians. They will tackle a bill to increase technology in public schools.
