5 things ahead this week at the Hawaii Legislature

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The Senate has a key vote this week on whether Michael Wilson should serve on the state Supreme Court.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie's nominee ran into a huge snag last week when members of the Senate Women's Caucus told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Clayton Hee (D-Kaneohe and Kaaawa) they had concerns over Wilson's past treatment of women. Hee took the question seriously enough to hold a follow-up hearing over the weekend. That, combined with Wilson's receiving a largely unexplained rating of "not qualified" from the Hawaii State Bar Association, makes Tuesday's floor vote one to watch.

Beyond the Wilson vote, there are several things to watch this week at the statehouse, including the fate of Hawaii's health insurance exchange, minimum wage and a bill to name the ukulele the state instrument.
