After the caucus tonight...

Speaker Say and Majority Leader were interviewed by media tonight around 6:15 p.m. on the results of the caucus. Regarding the Superferry, the members reviewed the latest draft prepared by the House and Senate attorneys. The caucus will regroup some time on Friday to agree on a final draft. It looks likely that the special session will convene on Wednesday, October 24.

In answer to questions on Vice Speaker Jon Riki Karamatsu, Majority Leader explained that Rep. Karamatsu made a brief statement to the caucus explaining his DUI arrest on Monday night, and he apologized to his colleagues for any embarassment brought upon the House. Speaker told press that he wanted a day or so to speak with Rep. Karamatsu and other members before making any decision on the Vice Speaker's leadership position.
