Our Republican Caucus Report

Aloha Friends and Neighbors

This week was the First Crossover of the 2023 legislative session. The Republican Representatives took all of Monday for an in-depth study session with the staff and research team to ensure they were making informed decisions on each and every bill. There was a lot of debate on the floor this past Tuesday, with each of our Republican Rep's rising to speak up on important issues.
