Think About It: Bill Will

Now is the time… if you ever felt inclined to get involved in the legislative process through your representatives, now is surely the time. Over the next month, proposed bills and major or minor pieces of legislation which will affect you and your family are being bandied about with language changes, concessions being made, modifications being proposed, and much backroom and front room discussion on-going in both the House and the Senate.

So where are you? It's not asking too much for you to go online to see when committee meetings are being held, or to check on various bills and their progress as they all go through the legislative morphing process. You can go to www.capitol.hawaii.gov, find a bill or two that you've heard about and that peak your interest, and then you can decide if you want to call a legislator, send an email, get your friends involved, or actually go down to the legislature to talk story. But hurry.

After all, these are your bills, the rules you will need to comply with, the edicts that you will be forced to abide by and live with, and waiting until after they all become law- well, then it's a little bit late to take action. Idly sitting by and passively watching the TV news might be fine for nine months a year, but in the midst of our very short, local, mind-numbing legislative session, you can actually make a difference by being pro-active. After all, you're the job provider to these elected officials. The clock's ticking; are you? Think about it…
