Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – Offices at the Hawaiʻi State Legislature will be closed on Thursday, August 23, and Friday, August 24 due to the heavy impact anticipated from Hurricane Lane.
The decision by House Speaker Scott K. Saiki and Senate President Ronald D. Kouchi is consistent with the Governor's order to grant administrative leave for non-essential employees statewide.
Additionally, since it is not known what the extent of the hurricane's impact will be the next few days, House employees should call the Speaker's office (586-6100), the Chief Clerk's office (586-6400) or the Sergeant-at-Arms office (586-6500) on Sunday evening after 7 p.m. There will be a recorded message advising House employees if offices will be open on Monday, August 27.
Unless they are informed otherwise, Senate employees should assume that all offices will be open for business on Monday, August 27.
