Tomorrow, Tuesday, is Day 59 of the 60-day 2008 legislative session. It will be a long day of voting for bills up for final reading in both the House and Senate. The House begins at 10 a.m., and you can watch the proceedings LIVE on Olelo, Channel 49. The Senate also begins at 10 a.m., and they will be broadcast on Channel 53. We'll do a post on dates/times for the rebroadcast schedule when that becomes available. If you want to follow along, the order of the day (O.D.) should be available on Tuesday morning on the capitol website, www.capitol.hawaii.gov, under bill status.
There are 152 bills up for Tuesday, and 29 bills up for Thursday. Wednesday is a recess day. The O.D. will include a consent calendar, bills for which members have consented to vote in one motion with no floor debate. Members are able to vote aye or noe, but they will not be able to rise and speak on any bill on the consent calendar.
