Hawaii civil unions advance

Timothy Kincaid

January 26th, 2011

Hawaii’s Senate Bill 232, identical to last year’s House Bill 444 which cleared the legislature but was vetoed by prior governor Lingle, has advanced. (Star Adviser)

Senate Bill 232 passed the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee by a 3-2 vote, after a hearing that lasted just over two hours.

The bill now goes to the Senate floor for the second of three required votes by the full chamber.

Unlike last year, the hearing was just two hours instead of eighteen, and fewer of the public showed up to watch and listen.
