Representative Holt's Message        

Aloha mai kākou,

The past week we continue to review, convene hearings, and vote on House Resolutions and Senate bills that have crossed over to the House.  During the later part of this week and all of next week, the focus will be in the finance committee as the bills with appropriations are reviewed.  This movement of bills will continue until April 7th, which marks the deadline to file bills for third reading in the non-originating body.

In the mean time, may I
extend an invitation to the State Capitol on Friday, April 7 for the 9th annual Art at the Capitol event. This free event has legislators opening their doors to the public to view the diverse collection of artwork from local artists that adorn our offices.
This year's theme, “Onipa‘a – The Spirit of Lili‘uokalani,” reflects on the saga and controversy surrounding the Queen Lili‘uokalani Statue and its sculptor, Marianna Pineda.  A documentary video to debut that evening tells the story behind the statue will be located in the House Chamber.

Art at the Capitol begins with an opening program at 4:30 p.m. in room 325 that includes an introduction of artists and special guests.  Self-guided tours start at 5 p.m.  The Senate and House galleries will be open to view the new video, plus “Father Damien -- Marks of Accomplishment” (2016) and other short documentaries produced for the past Art at the Capitol events. Music will be performed during the event by members of the Hawai‘i Youth Symphony and the OHA Serenaders.  The program ends at 7 p.m., then the public is invited to continue the celebration of local art and music across Richards Street at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum (HiSAM), which will be open until 9pm.

Hope to see you there!
