Third Reading / Second Crossover

Hear ye! Hear ye!  bell

On Tuesday, April 8th, we’ll see plenty of speeches on the floor of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Numerous bills will be debated prior to undergoing their Third Reading votes. To survive, a bill must pass its Third Reading vote by the Second Crossover deadline (April 10th).

While you can follow the action by coming down to the Capitol and watching from the galleries, on April 8th the proceedings will be broadcast, so you also have the option of watching on your television or computer. (For live viewing on the computer, go to www.olelo.org.)

To follow along, you may want to download the agenda, otherwise known as the ‘Order of the Day.’ Use the search box on the Legislature’s website (capitol.hawaii.gov). [Tip: Select the “.pdf” version which provides you with page numbers — it makes things a lot easier to follow!]

As always, let PAR know if we can be of assistance!
