5 things ahead this week in the Hawaii Legislature

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) There's a juggling act going on at the Hawaii Legislature as lawmakers negotiate the finer details of hundreds of bills.

Members of the House and Senate are getting together in conference committees this week to bridge the gaps between their goals.

They're swapping fresh drafts of bills, but most of the time they're putting off the toughest decisions.

Meanwhile, they're faced with deciding who gets money from a state budget that's at least 600 pages long.

And there are only two weeks left until the Legislature is done its work for the year.

Legislation they're taking on this week includes working out the details on a law that allowed police in Hawaii to have sex with prostitutes, whether or not to make the ukulele the state instrument, minimum wage and requiring health insurers to provide treatment for children with autism disorders.
