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.
