The Senate is now turning its attention to the $25 Billion State biennium budget, which allocates resources to all 20 executive departments in the government. We are also carefully considering all the Capital Improvement Projects and Grant-in-Aid requests for FY 2016 and FY 2017.

The Constitution mandates that we spend only what we have and prohibits deficit spending. Because of this, many worthy projects may not be funded in this cycle. Nonetheless, we are hopeful that over the coming weeks, we will find a fair budget for all of Hawai'i.

In the March 31 issue of our newsletter, we cover the State Legislative Leaders Foundation's (SLLF) Spring Leadership summit I attended this month at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. We share about high-level meetings with members of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) who were in Hawai'i for transportation talks at the request of state officials. We update you on the status of the 2015 measures that I introduced, and provide a list and description of 2015 Grant-In-Aid (GIA) applicants. And we update you on some Senate confirmations of Gov. Ige's departmental appointments.
