Several members of the committee had concerns about the property owners opinion on the resolution. The owner did not submit testimony nor was he present at the hearing. The resolution will move on for more discussion to the Committee on Water, Land & Ocean Resources.
Rep. Tom Brower, who introduced the resolution, said "We are proud of our Hawaii-born son. This resolution pays tribute to the President's childhood apartment, which symbolizes hope, inspiration and local pride."
