Rep. Blake Oshiro will be one of the guests on the next "Insights", the live, call-in, public affairs program produced and aired on Hawaii Public Television. The topic will be Civil Unions. The show airs on Thursday, April 2, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. Dan Boylan is the host. We are waiting for the final confirmed list of panelists. Last I heard, Senator Will Espero and Tambry Young from the Family Equality Coalition were also slated to appear, with one more slot to be filled.
*UPDATE: Councilmember Gary Okino and Private Attorney Robert Matsumoto, speaking against Civil Unions, will also be guest panelists.
Here's the link to HB444, the Civil Unions bill that was passed by the House, but stalled in the Senate Judiciary and Government Operations Committee. An attempt to pull the bill from the committee for a full floor vote failed last week.
