Hawaii House Speaker Joseph Souki on Thursday formally reprimanded a House lawmaker for her conduct during public hearings and threatened her committee assignments.
Hawaii House Speaker Joseph Souki started the 2014 legislative session Wednesday by calling for lawmakers to remove a cap on how much counties can share in the state's hotel room taxes, a move that would be welcomed by local mayors on the islands.
The House leadership initially considered more severe punishments, including suspending Hanohano or stripping her of her committee chairmanship, Souki told reporters in a news conference.
Souki said that a few weeks ago he reached out to Hanohano asking for her input on how to handle the situation, but she didn't respond.
