4/6/2010SHB 2667 failed to be adopted; Failed to pass Third Reading. Ayes, 8 (Senator(s) Espero, Gabbard, Green, Hanabusa, Kim, Sakamoto, Takamine, Taniguchi). Noes, 17 (Senator(s) Baker, Bunda, Chun Oakland, English, Fukunaga, Galuteria, Hee, Hemmings, Hooser, Ige, Ihara, Kidani, Kokubun, Nishihara, Slom, Tokuda, Tsutsui).
