2012 Legislative Update

The 2012 Legislative Session is done.  All we have left to do is wait and see what bills the Governor signs, vetoes, or allows to become law without his signature.

This year, the legislature appeared to be focused on unemployment insurance as one of the hot topics.  In fact, two bills regarding Hawaii’s unemployment insurance laws have already been signed into law by the Governor, and a third is on its way.  In addition, several other bills (on both employment and non-employment issues) are also still alive, and have been sent to the Governor for his signature or veto.

Hawaii Employers Council* (“HEC”) tracks legislation affecting Hawaii’s employers, and a copy of the Legislative Digest and Legislative Update articles can be found on HEC’s website here.

In addition, I will be presenting a seminar on the 2012 Legislative Session at the Hawaii Employers Council on June 6, 2012 at 9 am.  This briefing is FREE for HEC Members.  Also presenting with me will be Lowell Kalapa, President of the Tax Foundation of Hawaii.
