COVID-19 in Hawaiʻi 5|7|20

Air date: Thurs., May 7, 8:00 pm


INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI presses its coverage of COVID-19 in Hawaiʻi, this time seeking answers from key State lawmakers. At the start of the year, lawmakers had high hopes of addressing Hawaiʻi’s affordable housing crisis, increasing the minimum wage and creating tax breaks for the working class. Early education for pre-K students also was on the wish list. Then the new coronavirus took over. Now the focus is on how to recover from an economic meltdown while keeping Hawaiʻi’s people healthy. Join INSIGHTS’ statewide COVID-19 conversation with scheduled guests: State Senate Ways and Means Chair Donovan Dela Cruz, House Finance Chair Sylvia Luke and Hawaiʻi Island Representative Richard Onishi of the House Select Committee on COVID-19 Economic and Financial Preparedness. You can phone in or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
