Hawaii Congresswoman Gabbard to Cosponsor HJR 48

September 27, 2016

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard's  (D-HI) Chief of Staff just informed me that Tulsi is cosponsoring HJR 48, the We the People Amendment.  This brings to 23 the number of Congressional cosponsors representing 16 states.

In April of this year the Hawaii State Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging the Hawaii Congressional delegation to propose and pass an amendment such as that proposed in HJR 48.  Last year all four Hawaii Counties and HSAC (Hawaii State Association of Counties) passed similar resolutions.  It is notable that all these resolutions were modeled on the resolution Tulsi introduced in 2011 when she was a Honolulu City Councilwoman.

Special thanks to Councilwoman Karen Eoff and Hawaii Representative Nicole Lowen and all the MTA folks who submitted letters and made calls in support of the Amendment.
