HCR107 on Executive Agreements passes House Committee

HCR 107 “Establishing a joint legislative investigating committee to investigate the status of two executive agreements entered into in 1893 between United States President Grover Cleveland and Queen Lili’uokalani of the Hawaiian Kingdom, called the Lili’uokalani Assignment and the Agreement of Restoration” has passed the House Committee on Hawaiian Affairs. It will now move to the floor of the House of Representatives for debate, and then move on to the House Judiciary Committee.

Here’s a video on youtube that was posted by a person who was present at the hearing. Yesterday evening Representative Mele Carroll video taped her show at the capital with Dr. Keanu Sai, Willy Kauai, Ph.D. candidate and Assistant Professor Lynette Cruz as guests. Great dialogue and engagement of the executive agreements should be airing soon on cable access on all islands.

Update: Here’s Rep. Carroll’s show on HCR 107 done the evening of the day the resolution passed the Hawaiian Affairs Committee.
