Oahu voters approved two proposed amendments to the Honolulu Charter.

One amendment authorizes the City Council to establish special funds. Supporters said this would help ensure that certain revenues collected, such as the fuel tax, are used for their intended purposes and not put into the general fund.

The second amendment asked voters if a minimum of a half-percent of the annual general revenues should be set aside for the grants-in-aid fund to provide services for the economically or socially disadvantaged populations or to support services in areas of culture and arts, economic development and the environment.
