HB 444 HD1 is a bill to enact civil unions in Hawaii extending rights and benefits to same sex couples.
HB 444, Hawaii's Civil Union Bill, does not "take away" the rights of the majority, but extends them to a minority whose relationships and children deserve the same assurances, rights, protections, and opportunities our state is committed to giving all of its citizens.
Time is running out and your support is critical now. There's still time for you to make a difference for the families we value in our hearts, our homes, and our communities.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Hawaii State Senate to pass House Bill 444 HD1, civil unions bill, this 2009 Legislative session. We also ask that Senate Judiciary Committee chair Brian Taniguchi allow the full senate to vote on the Civil Unions bill this session by requesting a wavier or referral for House Bill 444 HD1.
