The Hawaii State Legislature kicked off its 2018 session with promises to address affordable housing, education, and, of course, the missile alert system.

Legislators are frantically working to get their bills drafted and introduced prior to the Jan. 24th cutoff date (today!). We are looking forward to the introduction of our priority bills, which include a bill to codify the ACA in state law and bills to reduce and/or eliminate other barriers to sexual and reproductive health care.

We excitedly await the introduction of ally-led legislation, including increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, establishing a family leave insurance program, banning employer discrimination against employees who use family planning services, and establishing a task force to implement a mandatory sexual abuse prevention program in public schools.
