“...For years we have asked for parity in the appropriate use of Hawaiian language as one of two official languages. I am elated that this measure is moving forward and will soon become law,” said Sen. English. “This is a great day for those of us who carry on the language of our grandparents’ parents,” he said.

If the measure successfully gains passage in both chambers and is signed by the governor, it would take affect on January 1, 2013.
