These are the chair and vice chair who we have to convince to schedule a hearing.  Get as many people to call as possible,

The vulnerable users bill is a share the road bill and requires a driver to pass a bicycle, pedestrian or wheel chair with at least 3 feet of clearance.  If you have ever been forced off the road by a car you know why this is important.

call the Judiciary Committee Members now.  Tell them this bill is important and you want it heard.

  1. HB1666 has been scheduled for a hearing 2/16 at 2pm. See hearing notice at http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/session2012/hearingnotices/HEARING_JUD_2-16-12_2_.HTM

    Thank for your effort. Now submit your testimony

    I spoke with Rep Agaran’s clerk Susan Wong, with Rep Rhoads (vice-chair), and with Rep Wooley. Feeling is that since it was referred only to TRN and JUD, it is now in JUD, the final committee. Susan will call back to talk about it.

    [Therefore it will make tomorrow’s first lateral deadline to the final committee and it can be heard in the next week so that it makes the first crossover deadline to Senate, which is March 2.]

    Susan Wong said they are getting a lot of calls to hear it, so that’s great! Keep it up. Then when it is scheduled, everyone here please send in written testimony at least.

    I’ll try to get in touch with Prosecutor’s to get some support from them.

    Thanks John and Anthony for alerting everyone.
