Legislative Member Update

The Hawaii State Capitol has been closed to the public this legislative session, but the legislators were busy introducing over 2,700 bills. The ACECH Legislative Committee identified and tracked nearly 50 bills that had the potential to affect our member business operations. These bills ranged from family leave, to individual tax clearances for professional licenses, to amendments to the State Procurement law. As usual the Legislative Committee monitored and played defense on several bills. However, during this session, some legislators appeared to take aim at procurement, specifically Qualification-Based Selection (QBS). Click on the button below to view the entire Legislative Member Update.
