January Newsletter from Rep. Jo Jordan




The 2013 Legislative Session is at its midway point. I will be sending out an updated community newsletter later this month. In the meantime, I have included the January 2013 newsletter here.

I also invite you to tune into my Oleo show — “Jordan’s Jordan” with Jobie Masagatani, Chair of the State Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) regarding the Nelson v. Hawaiian Homes Commission lawsuit and DHHL budget. The 2013 Legislative Session is a critical one for the future of the Hawaiian Home Lands Trust and its beneficiaries in light a recent Hawaii Supreme Court ruling in Nelson v. HCC. On May 9, 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that the State must provide DHHL with adequate funding or “sufficient sums” for administrative and operating expenses, but did not specify an exact amount. While DHHL can ask for sufficient sums, it is still up to the legislature to appropriate these resources. You can watch the show on Tuesday, March 12 at 11am on Channel 49. You can also view this show, all previous shows and get daily updates straight from my office by clicking like on my Facebook page.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at 586-8460 or repjordan@capitol.hawaii.gov. I greatly appreciate your input!
