Cynthia Thielen Honored

League member Representative Cynthia Thielen was named Outstanding Law Maker for 1999. Rep. Cynthia Thielen (R - Kailua/Kaneohe Bay Drive) was presented this award by the Small Business Hawaii at a luncheon in January. Rep. Thielen supported pro-business legislation and was the prime mover of a bill to establish the Hawaii Industrial Hemp Research Project. Signed into law by Governor Benjamin Cayatano, Act 305, enabled Hawaii to be the first state in the nation to plant industrial hemp seed, ending a nearly 50 year unwarranted restriction on this non-hallucinogenic agricultural crop.
