Government

Our committee will continue its work on reapportionment following the successful suit. Now we must watch the 1982 election to determine what impact the new plans have; of particular interest will be the two multi-county districts. We will also be preparing to lobby legislators to make appropriate changes in the state constitution so that it will be consistent with the court's decision.

In addition to action on reapportionment, members Marian Wilkins and Rhoda Miller have continued to follow, respectively, legislation on initiative and amendments to the state "sunshine" law. Bills on each issue were bottled up in the House after passing the Senate. Working next year in a coalition with Common Cause and the Hawaii Council of Churches, the committee will renew its efforts.

Anne Lee
Government chair
