URGENT Tech legislative action needed from Maui.   Received a call from Yuka at HTDC.  There is bill to extend the R&D Tax Credit provision from Act 221.  It is still alive, but barely.  They need calls BEFORE TOMORROW MORNING.  They haven't heard anything from Maui entrepreneurs and businesses.   So PLEASE call the legislators at the numbers below.  Leave a message that you support SB753.  Let them know you are involved with technology on Maui.   I just called all and it took less than 10 minutes.

 

You can read the bill, testimony, and see its progress through the process.  It is too late for written testimony.  

So make the phone calls.  Even if it is in the evening, you can leave voice mail.

As you can see, many of the key conferees are Maui legislators.

 

David, per our phone conversation.
 
if you could urge R&D companies, esp. ones on Maui, to call the conferees of SB753 as well as the leadership on both sides.
 
they need to CALL (not email) in support of SB753 as the bill is currently on lifesupport
don't expect to have your calls answered. just leave a message to say
"my name is...., from company X, and pls have the legislator support SB753, as it is vital to our company and the growth of the tech sector. we are already committed to doing business in hawaii and we would like to continue to do so"
 
here are their names and numbers:
 
Leadership/money committee chairs:
Sen. President: Shan Tsutsui (Maui) 586-7344
Sen. David Ige (Ways and Means Chair): 586-6230
 
Speaker Calvin Say: 586-6100
Rep. Marcus Oshiro: 586-6200
 
Maui/Conferee member:
Sen. Rose Baker (Maui): 586-6070
Rep. Kyle Yamashita (Maui): 586-6330
 
Conferee Chairs:
 
Chair Sen. Fukunaga: 586-6890
Chair Rep. McKelvey: 586-6160
Co-Chair Rep. Choy: 586-8475
 
Mahalo,
 
Yuka

@Jerry - We have an event calendar that has been successfully used by hundreds of other event organizers and we are happy to feature your event.

Crud - Thursday April 14th.

At least on most other services (qtask) I used the calendar function to schedule it.

Oops, I pasted in the wrong url.  http://www.google.com/events/io/2011/io2011.html

 

The only difference between Live and Extended is that Google's VP has taped a welcome message for us on Maui.  Hardly worth the trouble of getting up to be somewhere at 6am.  Or opening one's door at 6am for that matter.

At dinner Tuesday, I mentioned that I had signed up to host a Google I/O Extended on Maui.  Today they announced Google I/O Live which they will be broadcasting live the keynote and two session rooms All day.

Since that's the case, I won't look for someone else to host it, as it starts at 9am PDT, aka 6am HST.  It's May 10 & May 11.

Very good meeting.  I enjoyed hearing about GreenFunder and signed up this am. I'm going to work on getting a MauiMaker project in there now that we have a location (sharing space with Community WorkDay in Pu'unene).

Last night's meeting was fun! My daughter Molly's new barebones site is up!

Great way to test, market and fund your project. You can find it on Facebook too. Projects go live for funding in May.
