HISC Brown Bag Presentation #14

Title: I’m Just a Bill: An Overview of Hawaii’s Legislative Process Relating to Invasive Species

Presenter: Dr. Joshua Atwood, Hawaii Invasive Species Council

Date: January 10, 2018

Summary: The state legislature is an important venue for advancing Hawaii’s biosecurity. It can also be a confusing place full of fast-paced discussion and strange deadlines, like laterals, deckings, and crossovers. For those who’d like to engage, this brown bag presentation reviews the structure and calendar of our state legislature. In particular we focus on the committees and likely 2018 bills relevant to invasive species.
