U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye is planning a hearing on how federal economic stimulus dollars have been spent in Hawaii.
The Senate Appropriations Committee, which Inouye chairs, will hold the session Wednesday, starting at 9:30 a.m., at the state Capitol.
Inouye is to question government officials and private sector representatives.
Among the witnesses is state Department of Transportation chief Brennon Morioka. His agency has or will spend a large portion of the more than $1 billion slated for the state.
Also expected to testify are representatives of the U.S. Pacific Command and other state and federal agencies, as well as Hawaiian Electric Co. and other firms.
