Legislature responds on GIA process

Rep. Marcus Oshiro submitted a letter to the editor to The Advertiser last week Wednesday responding to the 3-part series on the Grant-in-Aid process.  It appeared this morning as did an op-ed from Senator Roz Baker.

The Finance Chair proposes three major changes starting in the 2008 session:
  1. Holding a public briefing for all grant applications.
  2. Posting the applications online on the capitol website.
  3. Eliminating the subcommittees of the Finance Committee dealing with grants, capitol improvements and taxation.
