5 things ahead in the Hawaii Legislature this week

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Committee hearings are slowing at the Hawaii state Legislature, so in the coming four-day week, the usual monsoon of public debate will taper to a fine mist.

That's not to say the hearings won't stir some curiosity. On Wednesday, a House committee will consider the merits of locking up "graffiti materials" like spray paint, such that anyone wanting a can of Krylon will have to flag down a store employee to access it. And a bill in a hearing Thursday could grant breast-feeding mothers a year reprieve from jury duty.

Other things to watch for this week at the statehouse include a bill that would ban smoking in and near public housing and another that would restrict telecom companies to billing for services that the customer specifically requests.
