» State Senate President Donna Mercado Kim issued a news release Tuesday afternoon saying she had contracted food poisoning and could not attend a Tuesday evening forum of Hawaii 1st Congressional District candidates. A Page B1 article Wednesday said the news release was issued on June 26.

Also, the Legislature has mandated that charter school students receive equal state funding, outside of facility costs, as students in regular public schools.
