When: November 7th, 10:00 a.m. Where: State Capitol Room 229. The update will be provided by the Hawaii Public Housing Authority. Also, the Public Housing Tenant Association will voice concerns about their own housing project conditions. Rep. Maile Shimabukuro and Sen. Suzanne Chun-Oakland serve as Chairs.
