Oops, we got this wrong. While the Hawaii Senate overrode Governor Lingle’s veto, the House did not. So the Streamlined Sales Tax amendments did not pass in Hawaii.
Many thanks to the distinguished Senator Fukunaga for pointing out this error to us .
The Hawaii state legislature just overrode a last minute veto by Governor Lingle to pass Hawaii Senate Bill 1678.
This is particularly important for Hawaii as the state is a large scale net purchaser of goods from other states.
Congratulations to the great state of Hawaii!
