Help Secure the Next Needed Hearing
As of the First Lateral deadline (Feb 17), the Hawaii Green Amendment (Senate bill, SB635) is alive and well, and advancing. With the next deadline, First Decking, now looming, we are focusing efforts on securing a hearing in the JDC/WAM committees. The hearing decision lies with Sen. Dela Cruz refused to hear the bill.
Please activate your networks and help us create a wave of support requesting Sen. Dela Cruz hear SB635.
- Sen. Dela Cruz, Chair Ways & Means
Not sure what to say? Here’s a suggestion:
Aloha Senator Dela Cruz,
My name is _____ and I’m a resident of ______.
Please schedule to hear and pass SB635 in your Committee on Ways and Means. This bill proposes a constitutional amendment that would crucially strengthen the environmental protections currently recognized in our Hawaii Constitution. This is needed now more than ever in these times where ecosystems and our climate are facing destruction. Having the Green Amendment would support and secure better government decision-making that avoids environmental pollution and degradation, and avoids litigation, as the health of the environment and environmental impacts would be considered first, at the start of planning, decision making, and regulating. Think Red Hill.
We all need clean water and air, a healthy environment and climate to live healthy, long and good quality lives. Please schedule and pass this very important bill.
