Bills include tobacco restrictions, bullying prevention, safe places for youth
Senator Karl Rhoads and Representative John M. Mizuno, co-conveners of the Legislature's Keiki Caucus, presented an aggressive of bills at the State Capitol today, relying on the support and input from dozens of organizations, individuals, and keiki themselves.
"The future of our entire state depends on our keiki," said Rep. Mizuno (Kalihi Valley, Kamehameha Heights, portion of Lower Kalihi). "This is our most promising, robust package of bills in the 25 years of the caucus."
Sen. Rhoads (Dowsett Highlands, Pu‘unui, Nu‘uanu, Pacific Heights, Pauoa, Punchbowl, Palama, Liliha, Iwilei, Chinatown, and Downtown) said the support and advice from Hawaiʻi's many children's advocacy groups is what makes this year's package so important.
