Representative Holt's Message                                          

Aloha mai kākou,

This week is the Second Crossover which is the deadline for Senate bills that have been amended in the House to return to the Senate.  The Senate is currently going through the same process with the amended House bills in the Senate.

The House and Senate bill amendments are either agreed by the original House or disagreed.  If an agreement is reached, the bill is considered to be passed by the Legislature and sent up to the Governor.  However, if the amendments are disagreed, those bills may go to Conference Committee, which can be described as an accelerated session where the areas of disagreement in the bill are discussed in a joint hearing including both delegated House and Senate Conference Committees for that specific bill.  No public testimony will be accepted during this time.  Conference begins next week and will continue for a 2 week duration.

Check your email for the weekly newsletter updates on what's happening at the Capitol during conference.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter!
Special mahalo to everyone who attended the Art in the Capitol event.  I was fortunate to have special guest, Hiroki Morinoue stop by in room 319.  His artwork, located in the reception area of the office, is a mono type print from 1993, "Volcano's National Park".  Hiroki Morinoue is an American artist of Japanese descent who has helped to pioneer in the United States the fusion of western Impressionism with modern Japanese design. In all of Morinoue’s work there is a compelling sense of place–the ocean shoreline, lava flows and Japanese gardens.
Hiroki Morinoue has been shown widely in the United States and Japan. He has completed several major public art commissions, including projects at the Honolulu Public Library, and the Hawaii Convention Center. Morinoue’s work is represented in the collections of The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu; The Honolulu Academy of Arts, The National Parks Collection, Maryland; Ueno No Mori Museum, Tokyo, and others.
