Fifty years of legislative history at your finger tips


In celebration of our State's 50th anniversary, the House and Senate clerk's offices created a website that compiles brief summations of the five-decade history of the Hawaii State Legislature. It is called "Fifty Years of Legislative History," and a link can be found on the Legislature's main website.

You'll learn about the most important policy issues of each era.

You'll browse through lists of the men and women who have served in the House and Senate.

You'll read about the challenges faced and accomplishments achieved during each decade.

The website will take you on a journey through time, from August 21, 1959 -- the date President Dwight Eisenhower signed the proclamation naming Hawaii the 50th state of the union -- until the new millennium.

The anniversary of Hawaii's statehood can get pretty controversial and not everyone wishes to "celebrate" it. The debate centers around how American culture and political dominance has changed Hawaii, but as a mainlander, I struggle to imagine America without the influence of Hawaii culture. A short little film about two Hawaiian legends, Duke Kahanamoku and Eddie Aikau, doesn't even begin to touch on how much the Aloha State has given to the U.S.: http://explore.org/explore/hawaii/films/150. This day should be used to celebrate the great things Hawaii has done since statehood, not to pine for something that has already passed.
