After 13 hours of hearing testimony on the marriage equality bill, the House Committees on Judiciary and Finance adjourned around midnight only to reconvene thismorning. With over 5000 people registered to testify in person, the bill is heading into its second day of hearings.
It’s not too late to stand with the thousand of Hawaii residents that support SB1, the marriage equality bill. Send a message to your Hawaii State House members urging them to support this historic piece of legislation. If you happen to be in Hawaii, join us at the state capitol in Honolulu to show your support.
