Today's The Day For Hawaii

The Hawaii Senate will vote today to concur with the amended marriage equality bill passed on Friday by the state House.
The Senate already voted 20 to 4 backing the bill and the amendments aren't expected to change any minds in Tuesday's final vote. Then it goes to the Governor for final approval. "We're on the cusp of becoming one of the states that is going to be recognizing marriage equity," said Blake Oshiro, Deputy Chief of Staff for Governor Neil Abercrombie. The earliest the Governor would sign it into law is Wednesday morning. His office does not want it to turn into a public spectacle and security is a concern so it will likely be limited to about 200 invited guests.
I'll post the usual video link this afternoon. THIS time it won't be agonizing to watch.
