BTW, McKelvey's assistant said there was lots of negative testimony (she was watching session on TV) and seemed to understand what I was saying loud and clear.And when I talked to Mizumo's assistant, she seemed alarmed and surprised that there was so much pushback on this bill. I have hopes that he will see the light and save us a time-consuming campaign to bring the bill down (which will unfortunately for him tend to end his political career also)
I have to think that someone (Homeland Security?) came to him and requested this bill since why would he think it up himself. I called his office 808-586-6050 and (very nicely) clued him in that there was a huge outcry on facebook and various internet sites with plans to make a youtube video mocking him etc. etc. I did this because I don't want to see someone brought down because he maybe was tricked into sponsoring this by some over-reaching spook.And better we get this killed gracefully than have to go into overdrive to fight it. I'm waiting on the vote. Also called Angus McKelvey's office and gave him a heads up that anyone associated with this bill is going to have the wrath of the internet rain down on them so he shouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Wish I'd gotten to him earlier, because the Chair of a committee can stop a bill dead (McKelvey is chair of ERB.) Unfortunately he won't hear what I've said until the meeting is pau.
David - I have been asking that question and included it in the testimony I just submitted. It is highly relevant to the discussion!
John - Yes that is what it says. firstname.lastname@example.org will email all representatives. :-)
thinking about Jerry Isdale's point below, does email@example.com really go to ALL reps ??
The link Jerry already shared : http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/members/legislators.aspx?chamber=H has this at the top of the page ...
I am really curious to find out how this came about.
Thanks, Karen. What gets me is this guy is in the legislature. Lawyers, right? Do they actually read the Law of the Land?
David - I don't see that they can even require Time Warner, Verizon, AT&T and so on to do this from the state level. Seriously violates the interstate commerce clause, IMO. And I'll be laughing so hard when these huge, powerful, RICH corporations start funding his opponents because they're so p'o'd
Yes, Peter - I'd love to see a video of Rep Mizuno attempting to justify this bill. In addition to outraging his constituents, I bet it would be hilarious in its cluelessnes about what he thinks he's proposing vs what he's ACTUALLY proposing.
If I have anything to say about it, whatever happens in Hawaii government goes on YouTube. ;)
A new marketing slogan: What happens in Hawaii stays in Hawaii...on servers accessible by the government for two years.
