Almost Showtime at the Hawaii State Senate

Senate Vote afternoon

It’s 11am here in Honolulu and the doors to the Senate chamber are about to open.  More and more equality advocates have arrived and are beginning to fill up the courtyard outside.  Thus far only about 20 members of our opposition have arrived, but if history is to repeat itself, we can expect many more to pour in at the last minute. We’ve been hearing positive comments from many of our friends in the Senate this morning, though a few are still wavering – or so they say.  We’re cautiously optimistic that we’ll be able to celebrate a successful Senate vote today and then get started on out organizing efforts for the House and the Governor over the weekend. I’ll be blogging throughout the proceedings and will bring you updates as they occur.  We’re not sure how long debate on the final vote will last, but we’re told it’s the only order of business on the calendar for the day. Mahalo.
