Hawaii House, Senate plan flurry of final votes

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii lawmakers face a fast-paced session of final votes as a major legislative deadline approaches.

The House and Senate must pass most bills by the end of Tuesday to send them to the other chamber. Those that miss the crossover deadline can't become laws.

The floor sessions Tuesday are packed with votes. The House was expected to take up nearly 200 bills, while the Senate considers more than 300.

Some of the measures the Senate will take up are joint majority package bills prioritized by Democrats. The House already passed its versions of measures to address invasive species, aging and climate change preparation.

The House floor session could last about 13 hours.
