5 things in week ahead for Hawaii Legislature

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Big crowds flooded committee hearings last week at the Hawaii legislature to stump for better regulation of solar power and to push against taxes on electronic smoking devices.

The bills that roused them to action (SB2656 and SB2495) will come up again in hearings this week. Other highlights of the fourth week of the session will include committee hearings on measures aimed at protecting against beach erosion and increasing the state's minimum wage.

A Senate bill (SB2940) would ban the mining technique of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in Hawaii. A violation would result in a $100,000 fine.

Five House bills arrive before the Labor and Public Employment Committee tomorrow all with different proposals for raising the state's minimum wage.
