Hawaii lawmakers to take up several bills before deadline

  • DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM

    The Hawaii Legislature is nearing the halfway point of the 2017 session.

The Hawaii Legislature is nearing the halfway point of the 2017 session. All bills have to pass out of their original chamber by Thursday.

Lawmakers are likely to take up proposals that aim to preserve coral reefs and the fish that call the reefs home. They’re also planning to consider bills that would make presidential candidates reveal their federal tax returns.

A bill to make it a felony to harm indigenous birds also may come up for a vote. Another bill in the mix would require cosmetologists to complete a training program on recognizing the signs of domestic violence.

Most of the action will be on Tuesday when lawmakers are planning long floor sessions to pass hundreds of bills ahead of the deadline.
