Gambling bills will move through Legislature unless people oppose them
by Larry Geller
HB2759 before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, in room 325 at 2:30 p.m. This bill would allow gambling on Hawaiian home lands. It has already passed the Committee on Hawaiian Affairs last week.
HB146, which would add a new section to the state constitution to permit gambling in Hawaii, is also on the same agenda.
If these bills are not stopped, they will just keep moving along.
If you feel strongly about the gambling issue, submit some testimony online. It’s easy. Try to get it in on Monday if you can.
The best thing is to show up in person, but if that’s not possible, submitting testimony is easier than ever this session.
