Hawaii Legislative Preview: Last week of session

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii's state Legislature has two working days left to pass every law they want this year.

On Thursday, the 2013 session ends.

Lawmakers are in recess on Monday and Wednesday, but plan marathon sessions on Tuesday and Thursday to fully vote on all bills left. Conference committees worked into Friday evening to finalize language to be presented to each chamber for floor votes, approving bills that created funding for a new school readiness program, an entrepreneurship initiative and emergency funds, among other things.

But the top priority for the House and Senate is voting on a $23.8 billion biennium budget. The proposal is about $262 million short of what Gov. Neil Abercrombie requested, but dedicates millions to capital improvement projects and drawing down the state's unfunded liabilities.
