HONOLULU (KHNL) - New state laws could make it easier and cheaper to live in Hawaii.
Governor Linda Lingle announces she will cut next year's fiscal budget.
It's part of the Lingle Administration's 4% restriction on spending for all State departments.
That amounts to $33 million.
Officials say it's to help balance and safeguard Hawaii's budget.
The 2009 fiscal year begins July first.
Governor Lingle also signs a new bill into law.
Act 2002 allows tax payers who file electronically, to designate up to three accounts for their tax refunds.
