Finance Chair Marcus Oshiro will be a guest speaker at the annual Hawaii State Association of Counties (HSAC) conference. The topic will be on the challenges of the 2010 legislative session, including how the budget was balanced, how the legislature closed a $1.2 billion deficit without raising the General Excise Tax and without taking the Transient Accommodations Tax from the Counties.
This year, HSAC will be at the J.W. Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa on the island of Oahu, June 24-26, 2010. Here's the HSAC news release. Rep. Oshiro will be speaking on June 25th.
