Legislation

The Hawaii State Legislature is one of two decision making channels for energy. The Legislature consists of two bodies: the House and the Senate. The passing of laws is completed during the legislative session held from January to May. Bills are introduced and go through standing committees in the House and Senate for review and amendment. Upon agreement from both sides, approved bills are sent to the Governor’s office to be signed into law.
