Rep. Jordan is a member of the House Finance Committee. Together, they discuss the challenges of balancing the budget this year, restoring certain services now that the economy is slowly recovering, and the outlook for the next biennium.
They talk about the cooperative relationship this year between the legislature and the Governor's Office, and some of the key initiatives that were passed as a result. Major steps were taken to restructure public employee benefits going forward. Some important issues remain and will be taken up again next year, such as providing payments towards the state's unfunded liability for retiree benefits.
Rep. Oshiro will be the special guest at Rep. Jordan's upcoming Legislative Town Hall Meeting. It will be held on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Waianae District Park Multi-purpose Room. More information on that to come.
